Faint whiffs of woodsmoke mark the nose of the 2019 Secret Block Wildlife Road Moppa Hills Shiraz, adding a welcome savory, meaty note to the bold blackberry and blueberry fruit. It’s medium to full-bodied, concentrated and ripe without being over the top at all. Nicely proportioned and balanced, with a silky-velvety feel and a long, harmonious finish, this should drink well for at least a decade or so.

Our Single Vineyard Series are exceptional examples of varietal definition and a unique sense of place which contributes to the complexity and personality of each wine.
Our Single Vineyard Series of wines are simply named after the block (in the inimitable Two Hands style), the road, and the township it comes from and put it on a map so you can draw your own conclusions. In our notes we?ll show you the elevation, the soil type, and aspect; soon we?ll even drive you out to the vineyards so you can taste the wines in situ. One thing is for sure; all the wines are completely unique and let their personality shine through.
