Description

One of Australia's icon wines, this is Cabernet at its very best. This wine is the very definition of power and elegance. Hand crafted by Keith Mugford and his team in the Margaret River, Moss Wood deservedly fits in the Exceptional category of Langton's Classification of Australian Wine.

Reveals nuances of cedar oak intertwined with honey-kissed red fruits, refreshing menthol, and hints of verdant tobacco. Its medium-bodied character is marked by a pronounced acidity, yet the tannins gather with a subtle, slightly textured grip, though the body may not fully match its structural prowess. Delightful notes of mint-infused red fruits dance alongside whispers of new leather, enveloped in a sweet honeyed essence that caresses both red and blue fruit profiles, culminating in a lingering finish of commendable length. This is a wine poised to age gracefully, evolving into a lusciously refined and sumptuous experience.

Hand picked from 52yo vines, matured for 29 months in French oak (15% new). Rippling layers of flavour and texture here. So long that it carries itself over the palate and through into the finish… what a finish! Pedigree and happenstance have collided to create a legend. The 2018 will go down as one of the greatest Moss Wood cabernets ever made, alongside the 2001.

Review

One of Australia’s great cabernets. This from a cooler season highlights and accentuates the typical bright red fruits and blue fruit mix, especially on the nose. It’s aromatic and perfumed with an African violet scent. The palate as always is so exquisitely balanced and refined. Since 1989 the cabernet has been augmented with the floral bright fruit of cabernet franc and the darker robust black fruits of petit verdot. The palate delivers with a gentle restraint yet there is power deep within. The chalky tannins define a long and focussed finish. A deceptive medium bodied wine that will cellar for many years. Cellar: 25 years.
