97/100 - Ray Jordan
Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon has firmly entrenched itself as one of Australia's finest red wines, and their annual release is always one of the most anticipated and demanded of the year. The newly released 2017 Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon is already receiving plenty of attention and we expect our limited remaining stocks to sell out quickly.
"97/100. 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"- Ray Jordan, The West Australian, April 25, 2020.
"97 Points. 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)."- Bob Campbell, The Real Review April 3, 2020.
"96 Points. 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."- Huon Hooke, The Real Review.
With a dedication to making hand-made wines that cellar gracefully, Moss Wood has for decades, won acclaim as a prestige producer and continues to do so.
Planted in 1969 with its first vintage in 1973, Moss Wood is located in the sub-region of Wilyabrup. Selected for the suitability of its soils, aspect and consistent climate, it is one of the finest vineyard sites in Australia.
Keith Mugford, as chief winemaker and co-proprietor, has been making wine and tending the vineyard at Moss Wood since 1979. He was joined in this by his wife Clare, in 1984. They seek and apply proven knowledge and technology to enhance grape and wine quality, constantly driving to be the best. This exacting viticulture and winemaking ensures wines of outstanding quality, distinguished by their consistency over many vintages.
Over time, the success of Moss Wood led the Mugfords to purchase a second property, Ribbon Vale, in 2000. This Wilyabrup, dry grown vineyard, is only 1200 metres from their original estate.
The Moss Wood and Mugford names are synonymous with uncompromising quality; their relentless and constant goal is to produce the perfect fruit and flawless great wine.
