Planted in 1969, Moss Wood has earned its place among the top new world producers of Cabernet Sauvignon. Amy's blend is predominantly Cabernet blended with Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot, resulting in a beautifully ripe and structured wine balanced by a plush fruitiness. It displays that hallmark Margaret River elegance and smoothness while remaining firmly structured. On the nose expect fragrant violet and blueberries, dark berries, currants and red berries - all the varietals contributing their unique characters. On the palate, this is a full wine with lifted acidity, smoothness and bursting with fruit. The tannins are firm but approachable, making this wine ideal to be consumed in its youth. Amazing value for money, this is a must-try from a top Australian winery.

James Halliday

Moss Wood’s Bordeaux blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec and petit verdot. Deep but bright crimson-purple foretells what is to come: a rich yet refined medium-bodied wine, oak and tannins present but not the least obvious.

Huon Hooke

(Cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec, petit verdot) Deep, youthfully bright purple/red colour, with a lovely cassis, mulberry and blueberry aroma, the palate rich, essency and fruit-sweet, with stacks of glorious berry cabernet flavour. The tannins are soft and fine-grained, mild-mannered and the wine is already drinking superbly. Blueberry and violet overtones. Fruit drives the wine.

Bob Campbell MW

A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec and petit verdot. Elegant, supple red with plum, blackberry, sweet herbs, green olive, cedar and spicy oak flavours. A core of sweet fruit gives the wine accessibility, but it has the density and structure to age very well.

Ray Jordan

This is a blend of cabemet sauvignon merlot malbec and petit verdot from the Glenmore Vineyard just north of Yallingup. This a cracker and as good as any under this label. Seamless tannin, and oak integration with some exceptional powerful yet refined fruit.

An attractively fresh array of mulberry and red-plum aromas with a rose-like floral edge, too. The palate has a very supple, succulent core of fleshy, sleek tannins that carry bright raspberry and mulberry flavors fresh and long. Great balance and vibrancy here. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec and petit verdot. Drink now. Screw cap.
