    Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2021

    Langton's Classified (Eighth Edition 2023)

    "One of Australia’s great cabernets. This from a cooler season highlights and accentuates the typical bright red fruits and blue fruit mix, especially on the nose. It’s aromatic and perfumed with an African violet scent. The palate as always is so exquisitely balanced and refined. Since 1989 the cabernet has been augmented with the floral bright fruit of cabernet franc and the darker robust black fruits of petit verdot. The palate delivers with a gentle restraint yet there is power deep within. The chalky tannins define a long and focussed finish. A deceptive medium bodied wine that will cellar for many years." 98 Points, Ray Jordan


    "High expectations accompany iconic labels such as Moss Wood, especially following on from the powerful 2020. This elegantly styled 21 vintage steps up and delivers, even in its youth. This is a wine built for cellaring and, as such, it was day two when the full gamut of flavours and textures opened up, in all their magisterial glory. Think boysenberry, blueberry essence and blackberries with nuances of nori, black olive, cedar and oak toast. There's boundless flavour intensity and a nervy freshness and silkiness to the mouthfeel. Quite the feat of engineering to craft something so substantial yet with such lightness of touch. Stunning." 98 Points, Paul Edwards, West Australian


    "Deep garnet red in the glass, very youthful, inky and opaque. Lovely lifted aromas of cassis, bramble, dried herbs, pencil shavings and nutty oak, wonderfully complex and incredibly evocative. Powerful on the palate, lashings of blackcurrant, mulberry, blackberry and cedar. This  is quintessential Margaret River cabernet, not too heavy or angular, just the right amount of sinewy, shapely tannin working superbly with a very pure drive of fruit and delivering fabulous length. Destined for a long and glorious life." 97 Points, AARON BRASHER, THE REAL REVIEW

    "Elegant red that is a benchmark for the variety with red rose petal, cassis, blackberry, cedar wood, cacao nibs flavours and a backbone of spicy French oak that adds extra complexity. Accessible but it’s almost a shame to drink it before 2030".
    96 Points, BOB CAMPBELL, THE REAL REVIEW

    "​​​​​​Form is temporary, class is permanent! True in the sportling world and also in wine. Moss Wood Cabernet is one of the country’s greatest reds and highly trade-able at auctions (first vintage 1973). As a single vineyard wine, every vintage tells it’s own story but it’s always fascinating. Moss Wood Cabernet 2021 has effusive red fruit notes on the nose. At one level it’s ‘Modern Cabernet’ with bright, fruit flavours but also classic with leather and cigar notes layering in complexity. The resolved tannins are exceptional and make the wine very enjoyable at this stage though collectors know that 40 years is a very reasonable drinking window. A predictably excellent release from the maestros." 5 Stars, Fergal Gleeson, Great Wine Blog
     
    "Deep ruby red with a purple hue and finely layered nose of riper red berries, blueberry, a hint of dried fig, bayleaf, lemon rind, cocoa, gentle sweet spice, marshmallow root and cedar. Calm and understated.
    In the mouth it’s an elegant and linear expression with a focus on fruit purity and precision that comes with a cool vintage. Flavours of sweet and crunchy red berries, mulberry, plum, a hint of blackberry and moments of roasted fennel drive with good intensity and are backed by sweet spice and bright acidity. Supple tannins hold throughout the midpalate to a reaching tail ending with a good chew of tension and hums notes of cherry and red apple. It’s missing some depth and savoury complexity, but rest assured it’s a classy well made wine that makes up for it with its finesse and delicacy. You can hold on this one for decades to come."
