Moda Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2020
The Moda's story began in a London wine bar, 1984.
I was there as a young winemaker on my first ever overseas trip. I was out to taste the great wines of the world.
Hoping to impress me, the bar's sommelier poured an Italian wine that I had never heard of - Amarone.
He explained that Amarone was a winemaking method. It's where grapes are air-dried before crushing to intensify flavours.
The power and opulence of that red wine blew me away. This was a style I had to master.
Today, I make the Moda by drying our best McLaren Vale Cabernet and Merlot grapes in the Amarone style.
We crush the dried fruit into our traditional open-topped concrete fermenters. The wine spends 18 months in French and American oak barrels.
The resulting wine gives an intense bouquet of blackcurrant, raisin and cigar-box. It tastes of rich, lush blueberry wrapped in fine dark cocoa.
