Moss Wood 2020 Semillon – Angus Hughson, Wine Pilot
Moss Wood has developed a reputation for its unique semillons with the bright crisp acidity of the Hunter Valley matched up with a more textural palate. They are beautifully food friendly wines that can also age well.
The 2020 has created a richer and more forward wine than usual that is ready for early drinking. It is generous and mouth filling for the usually elegant semillon with powerful fruit well balanced by zesty acidity – peach skin, acacia, honey and lanolin fruits sit over a dry and mid-weight palate. It is delicious now but will also drink well over the next five years.
