The fruit was hand-picked and delivered to the winery, where it was hand-sorted and destemmed. The must was then pumped into stainless-steel closed fermenters and inoculated for primary fermentation. During primary fermentation, pump-overs were conducted 3 times per day to enhance colour and flavour extraction. Once primary fermentation was complete the wine was pressed and then transferred to 228L French Oak Barriques, none of which were new. Malolactic fermentation was conducted in the barrel after which, the wine was racked into the tank; blended, analysed, and finally, returned to the barrel and aged for 18 months. In July 2022, the wine was racked from barrel to tank and blended. Fining trials were conducted to assess tannin balance. It was decided that the wine was improved with a slight fining with skim milk. On the 20th of July 2022, the 2021 Moss Wood Amy’s was sterile filtered and bottled.

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 flavours fresh and long. Great balance and vibrancy here. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec and petit verdot. Drink now. Screw cap.

Tasting Profile

The nose is a lifted expression of all of the varieties in the blend. The Merlot contributes rich and jammy, blackcurrant notes accented with watermelon aromas from the Malbec. The Cabernet Sauvignon dominates the varietal mix with heaped dollops of blueberry and red currants. As the wine begins to relax in the glass, the textural; charry, and chocolatey notes begin to materialise.
Carrying over from the nose the blueberries and red currants are immediately apparent. The firm tannin structure is accented nicely by the generosity contributed by the medium-full body of the mid-palate. The acidity has a gentle linearity which pairs nicely with the texture derived from the French Oak. The vibrancy and liveliness of the fruit weight make this wine very appealing and should be enjoyed while in its youth.
