Moss Wood 2019 Pinot Noir – Angus Hughson, Wine Pilot
Great to see Moss Wood Pinot Noir in such fine form in 2019 with the cooler vintage clearly working in its favour to produce a standout vintage and potentially a new high water mark for this label – only time will tell. A lightish Pinot colour, not such a bad thing, is followed by a strongly varietal array of aromatic fruits, from cranberry and raspberry through to stalky herbs too. There is also hints of tobacco which I often find in Moss Wood’s Pinots. The palate is then fleshy, supple and giving with more dark cherry and earthy spices before a long and supremely silky finish. Probably not the longest lived of Moss Woods’s Pinots but it certainly offers plenty to enjoy over the next five years.
