Rockford Moppa Springs 1999

90 points (2003 vintage about $28)

This is your typical/atypical Barossa Grenache Shiraz Mouvedre. Typical, because it is ripe, fruit forward, tannic. But atypical, because it is rather light in colour (you can see through it), light in oak (no noticable nose or taste), more toward the leathery furit (if you can say that), not candy flavoured or grippy tannins. Rocky likes to call it medium bodied and it is. It is very soft, but still tannic with a long finish, some spicey notes there. the alcohol is a bit too noticeable but not overwhelming. One of the better Barossa versions because of subtlety.
