Moss Wood

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most famous and widely planted red grape varieties in the world. It is immensely popular in Australia, where world-class wines are made in Coonawarra, Margaret River and the Yarra Valley. Each region has a distinctive character, but all tend to be more fruit-forward than those from France. Coonawarra has a distinct mint or Eucalypt aroma, Margaret River has a more tomato leaf character, while Yarra Valley is more elegant in style.

Its original home is Bordeaux, where it is the dominant grape on the left bank, Medoc and Graves. In Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be blended with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and with small amounts of Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the New World, it is both blended and made as a straight varietal. Excellent wines are also produced in the Napa Valley and Chile's Maipo Valley. The grapes are thick-skinned providing the characteristic high tannins and deep colour. The Cabernet Sauvignon wines tend to show fragrant cassis, herbaceous, full-bodied with high acid.

  4. Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
    this is a very attractive and drinkable vintage and it will certainly provide enjoyable early drinking. However, using the 1976 vintage as our example, we strongly recommend that those who have the opportunity to cellar the wine should do so. It ... Learn More

  5. Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
    "The pretty fruit characters and ripe tannins of the 2006 vintage make the wine very attractive in the short term but its composition, combined with its broad range of complex notes make it an ideal cellaring wine. In our discussions above ... Learn More

  6. Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2000
    We see the 2000 as being closest in character to the 1980 and the 1990 Cabernets and, in some ways, a combination of the two. There were differences from the earlier vintages. There was more rainfall during the 1990 growing season. Although there was ... Learn More

  7. Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
    Boysenberry, blackberry, violets, fennel seed, and that earthy/ferrous thing that Moss Wood often shows. Oak feels pared back and adds a layer of cedar and toast. Medium to full bodied, earthy and savoury, with some new leather too, along ... Learn More

  8. Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2003
    Looking back over the history of the vineyard, the team sees a commonality with the 1983 vintage in this wine. The similarities are the warm year and early vintage. Not surprisingly, the young wines were very similar, with ripe, concentrated fruit ... Learn More

  9. Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
    Peter Forrestal comments that this is an exceptional Moss Wood Cabernet, wildly fragrant with intense, fine blackcurrant and dark plum flavours, fleshy, velvety texture, and neatly integrated fine, ripe tannins on a finish that lingers. It is tightly structured and ... Learn More

  10. Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
    Bright youthful, deep brick red colour, attractive primary fruit, violets, toasty oak, leather, chocolate and mulberry. The wine sings with generous primary fruit. On the palate, the generous dark fruit flavours and full body make it almost plump and round, ... Learn More

  13. Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 1983
    The 1983 vintage provided a warm, consistent growing season and the vines were able to carry the crop to a high level of ripeness, while maintaining good acidity. This has produced a wine with strong fruit characters, reminiscent of vintages like 1976 ... Learn More
  14. Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2001
    It's hard to imagine two more different Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignons than the 2000 and the 2001. The former, the most approachable of them all - supple, almost lush, deep cassis and mulberry flavours with ripe, substantial yet almost gentle tannins. Keith ... Learn More
