Lùmenval Moppa Shiraz, Golden Amrita
The Lùmenval vineyard is located in Moppa, planted on the site of an old deer farm and thus named Lu, meaning deer, men-human and val-valley. A premium Barossa site producing small bunches of highly flavoured Shiraz grapes.
Bright lifted aromas with a medley of raspberry and blueberry fruit characters plus some floral, violet and lavender notes typical of the Moppa sub-region. The palate is complex and savoury, rich yet medium bodied with sweet cedar spice and dark blueberry fruit leading to a firm, fine grained tannin structure on the finish

TIME IN OAK
Individual sections of each vineyard are harvested separately and fermented in small open fermenters. A small percentage of whole bunches are included in some fermentations to enhance the natural aromatics of Moppa shiraz. Following fermentation the batches are basket pressed and aged in a combination of new and used French oak barrels and a ceramic egg where it matures for 18 months. A selection of the finest parcels is then made into Lumenval Moppa Shiraz and further bottle aged for 12 months prior to release.
