Moss Wood 2014 Amy’s – John Fordham – Sunday Telegraph, Sydney
MOSS Wood is a Margaret River high-flyer whose wines enjoy exalted status thanks to the creative genius of owner-winemaker Keith Mugford. While the 2012 Moss Wood Wilyabrup Cabernet Sauvignon is his crowning glory, the extremely affordable 2014 Moss Wood Amy’s, a Bordeaux styled blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec and petit verdot, stands out as a wine of sublime quality as well. It started under a different label as a 100 per cent cabernet sauvignon, with Mugford smartly adding other complementary varieties to the rebadged Amy’s banner. The 2014 Amy’s is arguably the most impressive, offering silky, full-bodied flavours in perfect balance. A wine for immediate enjoyment with the promise to age gracefully.
