Moss Wood 2020 Semillon – Ray Jordan, The Weekend West Australian
This remains one of my favourite wines in Margaret River. Mugford makes this in stainless steel so what you get is pure unadulterated semillon with the richness and intensity that says Margaret River. It’s always good to very good. In this year of intense ripe fruit, it is outstanding and a great example of what can be done with this variety as a standalone varietal. There is a lemony citrus tang and a crisp acidity. The power of the palate is extraordinary yet it delivers with such precision and fine elegance that is what this variety is all about. The purity and refreshing intensity and flavours are just so brilliant. Love it. Ages rather well, too.
