Moss Wood 2018 Ribbon Vale Sauvignon Blanc Semillon – James Halliday, The Wine Companion

Points: 95
Rating: Stars

An exercise in complexity from start to finish, with a rainbow of flavours anchored by barrel ferment notes. Fermentation was initiated in stainless steel, then transferred to used barriques to build texture, not flavour. After a brief stay in oak the wine was sterile filtered and bottled.
