A big thank you to Moss Wood for sending this beauty over for us to sample. We enjoyed every last drop.
2019 was a challenging vintage in Margaret River (WA). This was due to things like frost, super cold temperatures, birds eating the grapes and more rain than normal. As Moss Wood said, “The only thing we didn’t get was hail, so perhaps we should be thankful”.
Despite the hurdles, this wine has come out absolutely beautifully in my opinion. And no doubt will be very enjoyable over the next decade or so. That’s if you have the patience to cellar it.
In the glass it’s an alluring yellow shade with a golden glimmer to it. Fresh vanilla oak, a sprinkling of spice, juicy tropical fruits, pears and a hint of minerality come through on the nose. In the mouth it’s just perfection. It’s impeccably well rounded and simply darn scrumptious. A Chardonnay highlight of my year.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
