Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour and condition: Very deep brick red hue; bright condition. Nose: Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines never lack for complexity and this wine has it in spades. Their fruit aromas are a combination red currants and mulberries backed up with cedar, tobacco, leather and tar. Also, from a vineyard renowned for its masculine, slightly brooding demeanour, this is a slight change, with a generosity and friendliness not often seen in young Ribbon Vales. Palate: This theme continues on the palate, where we see a balance and generosity not often found with this vineyard. The red currant and mulberry flavours are generous and long, filling the mouth. The wine has full body, with concentrated and supple tannins giving the wine a long and well balanced finish. This is a slightly cooler vineyard than Moss Wood and it seems that extra warmth in 2012 has really suited it.

Moss Wood is a premium wine producer located in the Margaret River Wine region of Western Australia. The area is regarded as one of Australia's premium grape growing regions. Since 1984 Clare and Keith Mugford have consistently sought and applied new knowledge and technology to enhance grape and wine quality at Moss Wood. Together they have created a stable of wines that are distinguished by their consistency over many vintages and their ability to age superbly. Over the years as the company has grown, so too has the team who are all dedicated to the same pursuit of excellence. The wines produced at Moss Wood are: Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Semillon and from Moss Wood's Ribbon Vale Vineyard: Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Merlot and Merlot. Also produced is a predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon wine, Amy’s, from Glenmore Vineyard in Yallingup and Montgomery Brothers Vineyard in Cowaramup. Unwavering for nearly forty years the vision for Moss Wood is that of uncompromising quality, constantly seeking to produce the perfect fruit and flawless great wine. In an era of corporatisation within the Australian wine industry, Moss Wood has remained a small family run business whose development has been driven by winemaking and viticultural pursuit of excellence, rather than shifting consumer trend. Owners Keith and Clare Mugford enjoy the challenge of consistently producing high quality wines at Moss Wood. All decisions made in the vineyard and winery are based on the effect they will have on the quality of the wine. Read less
