La Bise The Thief? GSM 2016


A curiously named label in Natasha Mooney's La Bise range in honour of Walter Mooney from the mid 1800's. He was pinched for stealing a neighbour's cow in the Flinders Ranges' town of Melrose. It seems crime finds its way through that town with a fraudster among others hitting the oldest town in the area in recent memory too.

Gee this is a top slurp. Well made, I preferred this to the Shiraz 2015 which was sent at the same time.

Smokey and meaty, paprika with black fruits and raspberries. Each of the three varieties play their part yet they work well in unison. There's a bit of fruit, there's a bit of earth - all bases are covered. Medium bodied, there's good coverage and weight through the mouth with a moreish appeal. Worth tracking down.

Drink now to five years.
