Press Review

    Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Merlot 2018
    A vintage that produced some spellbinding wines and this is right up there with some of the best. This is high-class merlot displaying power and poise. The structure and combination of oak fruit and tannin is excellent. Leafy fruit with a trace of black fruits and dark plum. The palate has a grainy texture accentuated by the chalky tannins. Moss Wood has put a lot of time in managing this vineyard which they bought some years ago, with a particular emphasis on tannins. This is a merlot that makes quite a statement.

    Pretty, succulent red fruits are all wrapped up in fine, shapely tannins. Supple, lithe and elegant. A beautiful wine.

    Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Merlot 2018
    Well, this is a good expression of Merlot, to be sure. Red and black fruits, coffee bean, a sort of honey/floral perfume, and a bit of tar. It’s medium-bodied, has some savoury tobacco and black olive character in with red berries and plum, tannins is fine and powdery, dense and perfectly ripe, some cedar and subtle mint and seaweed flavour comes through on a long finish. Lovely balance. All just so. Svelte. Polished. Really good.
