Moss Wood 2021 Semillon – Angus Hughson, Wine Pilot
Great to see Moss Wood sticking with Semillon after all these years. And that perseverance pays off with wines which are always interesting and food friendly styles. This is a big wine from 2021 that weighs in at 14.5% alcohol but still has the acid balance which should see it age well. It’s far from shy and packed full of powerful fruits, from exotic guava to vibrant citrus with touches of lanolin and green apple. Despite its richness, the palate retains great focus and balance with bright acidity underpinning layers of fruit which drive a long and surprisingly elegant finish. An off-beat style for Moss Wood which is already drinking well and promises to do so for some time to come.
