Mojo Winemakers Bruno Shiraz 2017
- Rich, full-bodied
Here’s a new one for us. It’s the first go at Barossa shiraz from the crew at Mojo and it’s a ripper. It’s bright and punchy with hints of raspberry, white pepper and tobacco, all supported by time in a mix of French and American oak. This is big and rich, but still quite versatile with food. Grill a steak, roast some pork or grab a burger from around the corner. It’ll complement all of them quite well.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Confusingly, the Barossa Zone (aka 'Barossa') encompasses the Eden and Barossa Valley regions (the word 'Valley' being the key differentiator). If you don't want all your eggs in one basket, or all your shiraz from one region, this is one solid way to get some complexity of layers (of course, it's not all about shiraz - ha! Yes it is). Despite being about the same area, Eden Valley only has about 20% of the area under vine that its more famous neighbour manages. But it's no surprise that you'll find many of the big and boutique players sourcing their most expensive wines from a little higher than the Barossa Valley floor. So if you see a wine labelled as 'Barossa', you might just be looking at something that extra bit special.
The rules are there ain’t no rules, but here are some foods we think will work pretty well with this wine...
