Moss Wood 2017 Pinot Noir – Bob Campbell, The Real Review

Fresh, elegant pinot noir with appealing floral, red rose, bright cherry, spice anise and subtle nutty oak flavours. Good purity with impressive underlying power. Nicely poised with a firm structure suggesting cellaring potential without making the wine inaccessible now.

Moss Wood 2018 Chardonnay – Bob Campbell, The Real Review

Robust and intense chardonnay with grapefruit, stone fruit, peach, toasted hazelnut, brioche, and spicy oak flavours. A firmly-structured wine that’s a little closed at this stage and needs a year or two to open up and fully express its restrained complexity.

Moss Wood 2018 Chardonnay – Fergal Gleeson, The Great Wine Blog

Luxuriant and satisfying Chardonnay here from Moss Wood. Margaret River Chardonnay of this quality is a force to be reckoned with. Lashings of peach, toasty oak, wholemeal and nut flavours. But the fruit is of such quality and so bell clear it pulls all the parts together. The 2017 was voted Australia’s best Chardonnay by The Wine Companion . 2018 should also be a contender.

Moss Wood 2017 Pinot Noir – Fergal Gleeson, The Great Wine Blog

Many are still unaware that Moss Wood make a pinot such is their renown for Cabernet and Chardonnay. Well the 2017 continues a long line that goes all the way back to the founding of Moss Wood. It’s a lively and bright wine with cherry and strawberry flavours. What marks it out as an exceptional Pinot are the quality tannins which provide interest , texture and age worthiness.

Moss Wood Ribbon Vale 2016 Merlot – Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

Serious merlot out of Margaret River.

It’s firm. It’s solid. It’s substantial. This is merlot for the cellar; there’s nothing chummy-yummy drink-now about it. It tastes of blackcurrant, cedarwood, bay leaves and chocolate, the tannin then gravely and studded with peppercorns. Length, it has plenty. Fruit, same. And tannin, wow, this is spread with the good stuff.  It’s a wine for the long haul.

Moss Wood 2016 Pinot Noir – James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au

I have never been an admirer of Moss Wood’s Pinot Noir, mainly because of the lack of varietal character when grown in Margaret River. However, I must bow and acknowledge that this is among the best yet with its delicately pitched small red fruits set in a gently but persistently savoury backdrop. I know its admirers will cellar all or some of the wine, but I would drink it now while those red fruits still shine.

Moss Wood 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon – Ray Jordan, “Heavenly Cabernet” The Weekend Australian Magazine

. . . the latest Moss Wood 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is as close as can be to the greatest yet in this distinguished line. From the first sniff to the last lick of the lips you will be captivated by its engaging expression of cabernet. Vibrancy, purity and energy burst from the perfectly formed palate.
A stunning Moss Wood that captures the elements of this vintage perfectly. It’s a lighter vintage and so beautifully elegant. Perfumed violets and blackcurrant on the nose. The palate is more towards medium bodied but there is power and intensity here as it extends effortlessly to a  very long finish. Shows why this small estate is one of Australia’s greatest.

(Best drinking now to 2044)
