Moss Wood Ribbon Vale 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon – Fergal Gleeson, The Great Wine Blog
Moss Wood Semillon and Ribbon Vale SBS offer wine lovers access to Moss Wood quality at a lower price than the iconic reds. Despite using the same technique the Semillon is very different in style to Hunter Valley Semillon. It’s richer, textured and satisfying even in its youth. Definitely not as acid driven. That’ll be terroir then. The SBS shows great intensity and persistence. It’s steely rather than a tropical fruit riot. It sees some barrel fermentation for texture but has no impact on flavour. Two lovely wines. Two 4 star ratings.
