One of our favourtie wines and wineries. Moss Wood is an iconic winery that helped put Margaret river on the map. This is their flagship wine and an absolutely steller Cabernet with layers of complexity and character. Here are the notes from the winery for the 2015 vintage.
Initially there is a real impact of bright, fresh fruit aromas, dominated by the black fruits like blackberry and cherry, something we normally associate with Cabernet Franc, plus, of course, blueberry, red currant and the perfumed notes of violets. There are soft oak notes in the background that combine with some tobacco and tarry notes that Cabernet Sauvignon builds with long term barrel age.
This theme of lively fruit notes continues on the palate, where the generosity of the red and black fruit provides fleshy mouthfeel. This layer of red currant and blackberry flavours balances what is for Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon, quite a firm structure, with bright acidity and firm tannin. On the finish there is just a suggestion of toasty oak, tar and leather, giving the wine good length and persistence.
Moss wood is a family owned wine company and one of the pioneers for the Margaret River region. Their original plantings date back to 1969 with their first wines being made in 1973. Since then Margaret River has definitely made a name for itself as a well-recognized region in Australia with the wine's popularity consistently increasing.
