Moda Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2022

Moda Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2022

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.

A stunning wine. Just gorgeous and what one can always expect from the superb Joseph range.

One of the richest wines I've tasted. This one is going in the cellar for my granddaughter's 21st in 34 year's time. Hope I'm still around to savour it then!

My half-dozen ‘Joseph’ arrived three days ago, and are now settling into their new home; they will acclimatise for some time. However, I was first introduced to the Joseph in London; I purchased a dozen from ‘The Wine Society’ in the 90s ( I think). Superb wine then and I anticipate equally superb now, once my new arrivals have settled.
