MOSS WOOD Moss Wood Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River 2014

Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon is intensely perfumed and finely structured with cassis-blackcurrant aromas, hints of cedar and touches of violet. The oak and fruit are neatly balanced. With proven aging potential the wine develops subtle earth/demi-glace briar characters on the bouquet, and complexity and suppleness on the palate. The unirrigated and widely spaced vineyard (now 14.86-hectares) is planted on gentle north-east facing slopes with sandy loams to a gravelly red/brown loams over clay. Typically the fruit is hand-picked, de-stemmed into open tanks and hand-plunged four times a day until completion of fermentation. At the end of vinification the wine is allowed to macerate for around 10 to 14 days prior to pressing off into barrel. The wine is matured in 30% new and seasoned French oak barriques for 24 months.

Region Margaret River

Margaret River Located three hours south of Perth, Margaret River is Western Australia’s most prestigious wine-growing region. Serious vineyard development began only in the late 1960’s following the publication of a report by John Gladstones in 1965 stating that the area had a similar climate to Pomerol or St Emilion, with low frost risk, plenty of sunshine and equable temperatures within the growing season promoting even ripening. Margaret River’s climate is warm and maritime, with some cooling influence provided by southeast trade winds. The soils derive from granitic and a gneissic rock over which laterite has formed. The region can be divided in three sub-regions: the cooler south between Yallingup and Karridale with predominantly lateritic gravelly loamy sands and sandy loams; the warm and sunnier Willyabrup in the centre with predominantly gravelly loams, but some gritty sandy loams and granitic gravels; and Margaret River in the north with similar soils, but slightly cooler tem

This is entirely consistent with style; the wines from Willyabrup being more generous than the highly structured wines of the north and the elegant styles of the south. Margaret River is best known for high quality Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc Semillon blends and top notch Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux blends. Over the years, the region has established an astonishing reputation illustrating a consistency in quality and a strongly focused winemaking culture.

Winery MOSS WOOD

The Moss Wood property, at Wilyabrup in Margaret River, was purchased by Dr Bill and Sandra Pannell in 1969. A nursery of cabernet sauvignon was planted in the same year, before the establishment of the original vineyard (now known as the “Old Block) in 1970. It is one of the choicest and most beautiful vineyard sites in Australia . When the first vintage took place in 1973, only 250 dozen bottles of wine were made. In 1978 Keith Mugford, a young Roseworthy winemaking graduate joined Moss Wood as winemaker. By 1985 Keith and his new wife, Clare had assumed full ownership. Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon, with its distinct character and voice of place, has since become one of Australia’s most fabled wines with a huge reputation for aging gracefully in the cellar.
