Moss Wood 2017 Amy’s – John Lewis, Newcastle Herald

Rating: 5 Stars

What a delightful multi-faceted drop we have in this blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec and petit verdot. It has 13.5 per cent alcohol, ruby hues and cassis and caramel aromas. Vibrant blackcurrant flavour zips in on the front palate and elements of ripe black cherries, spice, Turkish delight chocolate and savoury oak home in on the middle palate. The finish has pepperminty tannins. Try it with glazed duck with pear and rocket salad. The Amy’s label dates back to 2002 and is Clare and Keith Mugford’s tribute to the late Margaret River pioneer Amy Beers and her family who farmed and ran cattle on the Glenmore property at Yallingup from 1895. Amy’s grandson, winemaker Ian Bell, planted the Glenmore vineyard on the property in 1990.
