Moss Wood Amy’s Magnum Cabernet Blend 1.5 Ltr

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon 76%, Merlot 8%, Malbec 8%, Petit Verdot 8%.
Region: Margaret River
Vintage: 2018

Deep, brick red hue, almost blue notes; bright condition. There is good volume and lift, with an array of aromas expected from this blend, with all varieties making their presence felt.  Cabernet Sauvignon dominates, so its blueberries and violets are clear, while Petit Verdot brings its dark berry and jubes, Merlot supporting with black currant and Malbec providing red fruit, almost watermelon-like and some white pepper spice. The complex notes typical of a Cabernet blend fill out the background with cedar and tobacco and despite being aged in exclusively old barrels some soft oak as well. As expected from the nose, the red and dark fruits dominate and fill the mouth, giving the wine tremendous length.  They sit over a firm but balanced structure, with acidity that is lifted, ensuring the fruit flavours are lively, full body gives good density and mouthfeel and on the finish, the tannins provide an astringency that doesn’t disrupt, being smooth with no furry or bitter edges. The Moss Wood Amy’s is produced in a style specifically intended to have early appeal.  The generous fruit characters and well-balanced tannin structure ensure it can be enjoyed as a youngster. Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon has a tremendous reputation for cellaring and the 2018 Amy’s will certainly  cellaring for 5+ years term .

Awards:

MOSS WOOD 2018 AMY’S – RAY JORDAN, “TOP 100 REDS” THE WEST AUSTRALIAN Points: 94

This is a blend of cabemet sauvignon merlot malbec and petit verdot from the Glenmore Vineyard just north of Yallingup. This a cracker and as good as any under this label. Seamless tannin, and oak integration with some exceptional powerful yet refined fruit.

MOSS WOOD 2018 AMY’S – JAMES HALLIDAY, WINE COMPANION Points: 96

Moss Wood’s Bordeaux blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec and petit verdot. Deep but bright crimson-purple foretells what is to come: a rich yet refined medium-bodied wine, oak and tannins present but not the least obvious.
