80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot
Acclaimed as one of Australia's finest Cabernets since Joe Grilli of Primo Estate released the first vintage in 1987. Joseph Moda is a McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot blend made from air dried grapes using the Italian (Moda) Amarone method.
95/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front (2013 Vintage)
"Perhaps the wine that put Primo Estate on the map. It’s an 80% cabernet and 20% merlot blend that gets the Amarone technique applied to fruit. Primo claim the dehydration reduces the grapes by about 15%, and adds some serious concentration. It spends around 18 months in new (20%) and old, American and French oak barrels. 

A pretty serious wine here. Smells of nougat, coconut, dark berry fruits, olive tapenade, plums and mocha powder. So much going on. Oak plays its hand in coconut-tinged flavours, but the freight train of dense, dark, powerful fruit is the main thing happening when you drink. It’s so pervasive, that brooding fruit, and though flecked with leafy, herbal notes, it’s all about concentration and control. Pretty impressive handling by the sinewy tannins, and acidity is back drop in chalky fringes and light saline tang. Very impressive release, destined for long, long spells in cellars. If you go now, go with decanter in hand."
96/100 Rob Geddes MW (2013 Vintage)
"The aromas are intriguing from its complex mix of the fresh and more mature cedar, black currant, celery, angostura and meatstock. The medium bodied, elegant, long palate is a joy. It has a lusciousness from tannins, cloaked in ripe bramble and white truffle fruits, with the length of finely wrought flavours holding well into the finish. It requires deep knowledge and a very sophisticated art form to understand the techniques used to deliver a wine so seemingly elegant, deep, and complex."
