Stay in with Moorooroo | 2017 The Moo Shiraz

The Moo Shiraz is a playful deviation from our flagship Lotties Shiraz. A full bodied wine wine that embodies the spirit of Barossa artistry. 

Showcasing the region’s strengths, The 2017 is a full bodied and complex, textural experience driven by bright fruit intensity aided by two and half years of barrel maturation. Expect an aroma of dark berries and coffee, while the robust palate bursts with cherry and mint with a peppery finish.

This wine is drinking beautifully now, and reminds us of evenings sitting by the fire with family enjoying simple Italian fare made with fine Barossa ingredients.
