Tasting Notes:

Sleek, with a smoky lanolin note lingering around the juicy core of pear and citrus flavors. Mineral and spice details gain some traction on the finish. Drink now. 2,000 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

You have to hand it to Moss Wood for its indomitable desire to climb the pinot noir mountain weighed down by the unsuitable climate. It might take a leaf out of the book of those regions (notably the Hunter Valley and Yarra Valley), using a 50/50% blend with shiraz, and the surprising synergy of those wines.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Moss Wood is an Australian winery based at Wilyabrup, in the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia. It is widely regarded as one of the best estates in the region. The first vines were planted at Moss Wood by obstetrician Dr Bill Pannell and his wife Sandra. The Pannells picked, pressed and bottled the early harvests by hand. Sandra Pannell tended vines and carted cases of wine to the railhead. Bill Pannell pruned and harvested, sometimes by moonlight. The 1975 vintage was a major success. Bill Pannell later described the Cabernet Sauvignon 1975 as "a little miracle". Planted in 1969 Moss Wood is an important, founding estate of the Margaret River wine region, located in the northern sub–region of Wilyabrup, Western Australia. Clare & Keith Mugford, as winemakers, viticulturalists & proprietors, have been making wine & tending the vineyard at Moss Wood since 1984 & 1979, respectively. Their exacting viticulture ensures the production of grapes of excellent quality & they have created a stable of fine wines distinguished by their consistency over each vintage & their ability to age superbly. The Moss Wood & Mugford names are synonymous with uncompromising quality.
