Moss Wood 2014 Chardonnay – Cameron Douglas – camerondouglasms.blogspot.co.nz

Points: 90
Rating: Stars

Quite a complex bouquet build around specific components nutty, cashew-like new oak, fresh California peach, red apple, toasty butter moments and a synergy these elements bring to the wine. On the palate – dry, spicy, warm and rich in flavour and texture; plenty of stone fruit reminders with peach and some apricot; lots of red apple; wood spice and cashew nut; mild tannins, medium+ (ish) acidity; great length; a serious wine. Drink now if decanted; ideal drinking window 2017 – 2020.
