Sorry, this product is
out of stock.

The Moss Wood 2002 Amy’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has a style typical of the vintage with vibrant fruit aromas, something which is a feature of Yallingup wines but really comes to the fore in such a mild year. The nose shows dark fruits of redcurrants and blueberries as well as some complex earthy notes not seen before, which we attribute to the inclusion of Merlot (about 5%) in the blend for the first time. There is also soft, toasty oak. On the palate, the wine also displays its ‘regionality’ with clear blueberry flavours filling the front and midpalate. The structure is firm with high acidity and assertive tannins, although both are balanced by excellent length of flavour. Ray Jordan,The West Australian

Region

The Margaret River is situated in South Western Australia, about 200 kilometres south of Perth. This area may grow less than 5% of the country’s grapes but it produces a very significant proportion of the country’s best wine. The climate is Mediterranean, meaning that it is warm enough to make some brilliant Bordeaux blends and Cabernets, yet cool enough for elegant Chardonnays and Semillion.  Margaret River is made up of mainly smaller, boutique producers with over 215 vineyards across the region. One of our favourite producers is from this region; Stella Bella wines. We can highly recommend Suckfizzle Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon which is made from grapes from a single small vineyard in Augusta, Suckfizzle.
