This wine is acclaimed as one of Australia’s finest Cabernets since Joe Grilli of Primo Estate released the first vintage in 1987. To create the JOSEPH Moda, Joe combines Aussie know-how with his traditional Italian winemaking by air drying the finest McLaren Vale fruit on shaded outdoor racks for two weeks prior to crushing. The fruit is concentrated so that it loses around 15% of its weight. This inspired use of the Italian Amarone technique creates an opulent, brooding wine. All fruit is hand harvested and sorted from Primo Estate's dry grown vineyards in McLaren Vale and Clarendon. The wine is aged in new French and American oak barriques for 20 months to create a subtle layering - mocha, cinnamon, vanilla and cedar streaks ripple through the palate; the considerable tannins are saturated by the sheer lushness of flavour.

Present here in magnum form, the wine has the potential for over 20 years of ageing.

Tasting Notes
'The Joseph Moda 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot will take its place among the best, too. Beautiful fresh and fragrant crimson-to-black fruits lift out of a super-concentrated and tightly packed palate with fine oak tannins adding to a dark chocolatey texture. Drink it now or wait five, 10, even 20 years. It’s a genuine stayer.' - Tony Love, SA Weekend, May 2014
