Moss Wood have an internationally recognised reputation for producing some of the finest examples of Cabernet and Merlot outside of Bordeaux. Since the Mugford’s purchased the Ribbon Vale Vineyard back in 2000, they have been working tirelessly to produce the best possible examples of these varietals they could from this site.
The 2020 Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Merlot reflects the winery's ongoing commitment to Margaret River Merlot, which continues to yield impressive results. The palate is dense with plenty of bright blackberry and satsuma plum fruit flavours filling the front and mid palate and the confectionery notes appear like musk sticks. There is nice mouth feel, with the full body complementing the quite dense tannin, the product of the low crop and cool late season. The finish has light toasty oak and coffee beans. Another impressive Moss Wood Merlot with a long future ahead of it.
"94 Points. A precise, measured and focused bouquet with scents of baking spices and roasted plums, some black berry fruits and wood smoke. Complex and youthful, enticing and new. Delicious and dry on the palate with flavours of anise and vanilla, plums and dark berry fruits and nut. Firm tannins and acidity remind me of the youthful side of this wine, but the core fruits and sweeter wood flavours make this example morish and drinkable today. Best enjoyed from late 2023 through 2029+."- Cameron Douglas, camdouglasms.com.
