Winery Tasting Notes

Colour and condition: Deep brick red, in bright condition.

Nose: This shows a classic snapshot of what the 2008 vintage was all about. Of course, the aroma contains the typical Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon characters of mulberry and red currant but these are given significant lift by pretty notes that can be traced back to the early Autumn. Cabernet’s rose-like and pomegranate scents are not often retained but in this wine they help the nose fill the glass. In the background the wine still retains the typical dark chocolate, earth and leatherlike complexities, as well as spicy, toasty oak.

Palate: Perhaps the observation could be made this displays the warmer, early phase of the season. A classic Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon, with fully ripened fruit flavours of mulberry and raspberry, that are long and generous. These sit over good acidity and wellbalanced, fine-grained tannin, giving a seamless feel. The finish is a combination of oak flavours and tannin that extend the length.

Winery Profile

Moss Wood is a premium wine producer located in the Wilyabrup sub region of the Margaret River Wine region of Western Australia. The area is regarded as one of Australia's premium grape growing regions. Since 1984 Clare and Keith Mugford have consistently sought and applied new knowledge and technology to enhance grape and wine quality at Moss Wood.

Moss Wood was established in the Margaret River region, in 1969 by pioneer and visionary Dr Bill Pannell who selected the Wilyabrup property for the suitability of its soils and aspect, his selection is truly one of the finest vineyard sites in Australia. Bill and his wife Sandra’s vision for Moss Wood was to create a purist winery dedicated to the production of site specific fine wines. Clare and Keith Mugford bought the property in 1985.

A paper by viticulturist, Dr John Gladstones, first drew attention to the suitability of the Margaret River region for making wine. Gladstones believed that the soil found in the area, clay subsoil covered by gravelly loam, was ideal for viticulture. He compared the Margaret River climate with that of Bordeaux, indicating that both had an average rainfall of over 1000mms and an absence of temperature extremes, because of the influence of the sea on three sides. One of the first to be influenced by Gladstones' theory was Bill Pannell who spent six months searching the Margaret River area for ideal land for a vineyard. He chose a site at Wilyabrup and persuaded the owner, to sub-divide his land and to sell the block, which became Moss Wood. Bill and Sandra Pannell commenced work on the Moss Wood vineyard in 1969.

For over forty years the unwavering vision for Moss Wood has been that of uncompromising quality, constantly seeking to produce perfect fruit and flawlessly great wine. In an era of corporatisation within the Australian wine industry, Moss Wood has remained a small family run business whose development has been driven by winemaking and viticultural pursuit of excellence, rather than shifting consumer trend.

Over the years fruit from several vineyards, each with their own distinct characters and qualities, has been sourced to produce wines to complement those which come from our vineyard at Moss Wood. Each vineyard produces its own range of wines with no fruit inter-blending between vineyards.
