Moonstruck is an original blend from McPherson’s Trophy winning winemaker Jo Nash. Dark, smooth and enticing, the wine’s humorous label belies a serious drop, thanks to stylish Cabernet and pitch black, spicy Durif. It’s sure to be a howling success.
Moonstruck, the 1987 romcom starring Cher and Nicholas Cage, won three Oscars and put millions under its “lunar-tuney spell” (Time magazine). We reckon our vinous version might be set for a gong itself. It will certainly capture hearts with its warm, spicy, black fruit. Having worked for top names in Oz, winemaker Andrew McPherson has been going it alone for some years now. In 2011 he appointed Jo Nash as Chief Winemaker, and in 2014 alone she rewarded him with four Trophies and 11 Golds. For Moonstruck Jo used grapes from Victoria, harvested at night for the right combination of ripeness and peppery elegance. Moonstruck is not only perfect for Halloween and Bonfire Night but tastes delicious year round, especially with tasty sausages.
"An excellent red. I especially enjoyed the blackcurrant and sweet spice. Full marks for this one"
