. . . the latest Moss Wood 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is as close as can be to the greatest yet in this distinguished line. From the first sniff to the last lick of the lips you will be captivated by its engaging expression of cabernet. Vibrancy, purity and energy burst from the perfectly formed palate. A stunning Moss Wood that captures the elements of this vintage perfectly. It’s a lighter vintage and so beautifully elegant. Perfumed violets and blackcurrant on the nose. The palate is more towards medium bodied but there is power and intensity here as it extends effortlessly to a very long finish. Shows why this small estate is one of Australia’s greatest.

Deepish red colour with a good tint of purple, and a bouquet of sweet berries, violets, mulberries and cassis. A fragrant, almost floral cabernet, the elegance of the nose reflected on the palate, which is medium to full-bodied and juicy, delicious and finely-textured. A lovely wine, already drinking well, and a lighter vintage for this maker – but gorgeous.

Delicious cabernet, with an appealing core of sweet, ripe blackcurrant and blackberry with subtle spice, cedar and nutty oak characters. This is a seriously good red wine that can be enjoyed now but promises to be sensational after at least 5-6 years of bottle age.
