Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2017


Recommended Retail Price: $150.00

Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon has entrenched itself as one of Australia’s most sort after and iconic wines. This wine is one of the most collected wines found in the Winex Storage wine storage cellar and fits in the Exceptional category of Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine.

The 2017 is a highly covetable collectable wine for the cellar with a proven track record of performance in the long term.

This wine is more elegant, softer … more willowy and subtle – and has a gentler and more pronounced fragrance than is usual. This taste’s a little younger than recent vintages on release – but based on its fruit quality and serious length of flavour it is going to be an epic Moss Wood Australian Cabernet.

This is one of my higher pointed Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignons. It was tasted masked in a peer group that included, amongst others, several of Australia’s greatest young cabernets.

Score: 19 Points

Ray Jordan    The West Australian

The 2017 vintage was one of the milder vintages in WA. The latest Moss Wood captures this vintage perfectly and is without doubt one of the more restrained and tightly framed Moss Woods of recent years. Not the opulence of 2014 or the firm power of the 2016. Yet it retains the elegance, perfume and soft approachability that is Moss Wood. And hidden within is a wine that I suspect will still be drinking beautifully in 30 years. Make sure you decant it even now before drinking.

Score: 97/100

Huon Hooke   The Real Review

Deep red colour with a purple tinge. The bouquet is shy and closed, with some char-oak aromas plus blackberry, violet and other black fruits, the palate full-bodied and savoury, well-endowed with savoury, fine-grained tannins which run the full length of the palate. A stunning wine in the making. It’s all about potential. Must cellar for best results.

Score: 96/100 5 Stars

Now – 2050

Although the Moss Wood cellaring notes say ‘At present, the wine is showing vibrant fruit aromas so it’s an appealing youngster and can certainly be enjoyed now.’ it goes on to say that it will take until at least 20 years of age before it reaches full maturity
