2010 Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon

$200.00

Established by Doctor Bill and Sandra Pannell in 1969, the inaugural release of the Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon was in 1973, where only 250 dozen bottles were produced. The wine has since become highly celebrated, largely due to its reputation for graceful ageing.

The unirrigated, dry-grown 15-hectare vineyard is located on north-east-facing, gently sloping sandy and gravelly red-brown loams over clay. Now owned by winemaker Keith Mugford and his wife Clare, the vineyard’s management is focused on sustainable farming practices and optimisation of fruit quality.

Description

96 Points James Halliday
Deep crimson-purple; the fragrant bouquet sets the scene for the cascade of blackcurrant, redcurrant and cedary oak (over 30 months in barriques), supple tannins providing the framework for long-term cellaring. One of the blue bloods of Margaret River, and in scintillating form, the small amount of petit verdot and cabernet franc precisely weighted.

97 Points Huon Hooke
Deep, dark red/purple: excellent colour. Almond meal and walnut, bayleaf over dark fruit aromas. Rich, full-bodied, robust wine with lovely fleshy texture and ample fine-grained tannins that run the full length of the palate. An excellent deep-set core of sweet fruit. Delicious wine: long, complete, satisfying. Drink: 2013-2040.
