Press Review

    Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018

    Super classy and intricately crafted, this is a blend that revels in the crystalline purity, tension and focus of bright lemon fruit and lemon grass, gracefully polished with the spice, texture and elongating effect of old barrel fermentation. Such length and tension promise decades of potential. If you love white Bordeaux, you’ll adore this – and at a bargain price.

    Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018

    An exercise in complexity from start to finish, with a rainbow of flavours anchored by barrel ferment notes. Fermentation was initiated in stainless steel, then transferred to used barriques to build texture, not flavour. After a brief stay in oak the wine was sterile filtered and bottled.

    Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018

    Very complex, fresh and convincingly vibrant blend with a lime and lemo-cream core of fruit on the palate, as well as green-mango notes. Great depth and elegance. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

    Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018

    A young SBS blend showing nicely integrated barrel influence enhancing citrus, pineapple and herbal fruit aromas. In the mouth it’s richly flavoured yet very dry, with a tight backbone of acidity and a long, savoury finish. Margaret River with a slight French accent.

    Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018

    Light straw-yellow colour, with a hint of nougat on the nose, as well as vanilla and nutty suggestions of barrel age. There is richness and texture, intensity and drive, with good extract and satisfying weight, as well as subtle varietal definition. It has a satisfying, juicy finish and a clean, dry aftertaste.

    Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018

    Moss Wood Semillon and Ribbon Vale SBS offer wine lovers access to Moss Wood quality at a lower price than the iconic reds. Despite using the same technique the Semillon is very different in style to Hunter Valley Semillon. It’s richer, textured and satisfying even in its youth. Definitely not as acid driven. That’ll be terroir then. The SBS shows great intensity and persistence. It’s steely rather than a tropical fruit riot. It sees some barrel fermentation for texture but has no impact on flavour. Two lovely wines.

    Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018

    I confess to not being a sauvignon blanc devotee – but team it with semillon and it’s a different story. Margaret River producers tick many boxes with their blends of the two varieties and this 2018 Moss Wood is straw-hued with brassy tints and brings in scents of kiwifruit and herbs. Crisp gooseberry flavor features on the front of the palate and lemon zest, nashi pear and mineral characters chime in on the middle palate. The finish displays slatey acid. It and today’s other wines are at mosswood.com. au and fine wine stores. It would go well with garfish with fennel and artichoke salad. It’s from the Ribbon Vale vineyard, bought by the Mugfords in 2000 and close to the original Moss Wood.
