Winery Tasting Note (2017 Vintage)

Nose: Lifted aromatics of strawberry, quince jelly, roses and cherries.  In the background there is an array of Pinot’s complex notes – earth, cumin and mushroom.  There are also light, toasty oak notes.

Palate: The palate has medium to full body with bright fruit flavours.  Strawberries, cherries and dark jubes sit over a firm tannin, so the wine has excellent balance; it is lively and intense without being heavy.  The performance is completed with some toasty oak on the finish.

Planted in 1969, Moss Wood is a founding estate of the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia. Grapes were first planted on the estate in 1969 and Keith Mugford took over the estate in 1985. To this day, Moss Wood is considered one of the best growers and winemakers in the wine region, which itself is considered one of the premier wine regions of Australia.

The Estate property was first planted with Cabernet Sauvignon followed by Semillion and Pinot Noir. The Ribbon Vale property was acquired in 2000 is planted with Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines.

Keith and his wife, Clare, have developed the vineyard and utilized their wine-making skill to consistently produce wines of great finesse and lasting capability.  

Kensington Wine Market is privileged to be one of the exclusive purveyors of Moss Wood wine for more than 15 years.
