    Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon | Langton's 'Exceptional' Classification (VII 2018)

    Proprietors and winemakers, Clare and Keith Mugford, have established an internationally recognised Margaret River landmark, with a focus on Cabernet Sauvignon. Being part of the Langton’s ‘Exceptional’ ranking since 1991 and other internationally respected wine awards, the couple has also proven that other Moss Wood wines, like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Semillons, showcase exceptional quality and longevity.

Press Review

    Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
    The 2017 vintage was one of the milder vintages in WA. The latest Moss Wood captures this vintage perfectly and is without doubt one of the more restrained and tightly framed Moss Woods of recent years. Not the opulence of 2014 or the firm power of the 2016. Yet it retains the elegance, perfume and soft approachability that is Moss Wood. And hidden within is a wine that I suspect will be still drinking beautifully in 30 years. Make sure you decant it even now before drinking.

    Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
    Supremely elegant cabernet sauvignon with red and blue fruits, floral, violet, shoe box, cedar, nutmeg and nutty oak flavours. No single flavour dominates creating a delicious medley of appealing characters. Power delivered with subtlety. While it can be appreciated now I'd love to taste it in another decade (or two).

    A compelling rendition of the variety; the gloriously expressed bouquet shows cassis, dark plum, olive and spicy oak characters with a lovely violet overtone. It’s impressively weighted and dense on the palate, offering terrific fruit intensity and power, while remaining refined and classically structured by fine chalky tannins. Built for the long haul. At its best: 2023 to 2042.

    Deep red colour with a purple tinge. The bouquet is shy and closed, with some char-oak aromas plus blackberry, violet and other black fruits, the palate full-bodied and savoury, well-endowed with savoury, fine-grained tannins which run the full length of the palate. A stunning wine in the making. It's all about potential. Must cellar for best results.

    “Western Australia’s greatest vintage ever?”
    Very attractive aromas of blue fruit, as well as red cherries and redcurrants with cedary, savory nuances, stones, flowers and woody spices. This is both pristine and full of interest. The palate has elegant style with a fine brand of elegant, long tannin and fresh red-berry flavors. Up there with the finest releases, this is beautifully balanced and very drinkable already, though cellaring will bring further rewards.

    Western Australia’s greatest vintage ever?

    Australia is such a rugged, diverse and exciting part of the Australian wine landscape. I recently tasted almost 500 latest releases from across the state just ahead of the COVID-19 lockdown. I found a captivating refinement of the wines from the state’s vinous crown jewel, Margaret River, as well as a rise in quality in the bottle across the vast region of Great Southern.

    The Western Australian wine scene continues to power along strongly, helped by the turbo-charged impact of the 2018 harvest, which delivered such impressive stylish and deep wines across much of the state. The 2018 vintage is one to celebrate and collect as wines come out on the market.

    “An outstanding wine of exceptional complexity and character. In short, these are terrific wines.”
    Marked by notes of ripe cherries, red-skinned plums and hints of cassis, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon was being bottled the day of my visit, so I tasted it from tank. It’s medium to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. While previous vintages showed more oak influence, this (and the 2018 and 2019) show a more nuanced touch and barely noticeable cedar and vanilla shadings.

    Moss Wood 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
    Moss Wood is in a very confident place right now, and its flagship is singing. lt’s at once ethereally fragrant, eminently fine-boned, unashamedly medium-bodied, and simultaneously deep and rich in its exemplary black fruit expression. I have not always adored Moss Wood, but, by goodness, I do now. This is one of the greats.
