Moss Wood 2023 Semillon – Marc Malouf – Wine Worth Writing About
Medium straw with lime reflections and a nose of gardenia, pink rose, floral citrus, Piel de Sapo melon, custard apple, yellow plum, sweet snow peas, white pepper and candied ginger.
In the mouth it’s silky, mineral, vibrant and beautifully sculpted with a delicacy and elegance I’ve not yet seen in a Margaret River Semillon. The balance is stunning. Lime, lemonade, rose, melon, apricot, nectarine and bitter almond show with such purity and freshness of flavour and are gripped with the finest of tannins and sizzling minerality. A welcomed savoury note appears in the midpalate and holds over a long tail that seems to have no end. This wine tells a compelling story of Margaret River Semillon and is an outstanding release in my eyes
