Moss Wood was founded in 1969 and is now owned by Keith and Clare Musford. It is in the sub-region of Margaret River, which is an ideal region for producing world class wines due to the climate. Moss Wood is one of the founding wineries in Margaret River and has been awarded with the highest (five star) rating by critic James Halliday. Their Cabernet Sauvignon is also one of 22 wines rated ‘Exceptional’ by the Langton’s Classification of Australian Wines. The reds are made from Bordeaux grape varieties: Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot and can easily rival Bordeaux classified growth at the same price points.

This wine is a delightful blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, showcasing the winery's dedication to crafting exceptional wines. The grapes are carefully sourced from the Ribbon Vale vineyard, known for its ideal growing conditions and terroir.

For both varieties, the fruit was hand-picked and whole bunch pressed, and the juice was settled in stainless steel tanks. The clear juice was then racked to stainless steel and seeded with multiple yeast strains. Once fermentation was under way, the wines were racked to 228 litre, French oak barrels, none of which were new, and where they stayed for 3 months. We prefer old oak because it allows the wine to develop good texture, without the fruit aroma being over-powered by wood characters.

At the end of the aging period, all barrels were racked and blended in stainless steel, where it was fined with bentonite for protein stability and then sterile filtered and bottled on 12th July, 2017.

Tasting Notes:
Color: Pale straw yellow with a hint of green.
Nose: Aromas of citrus, tropical fruits, and fresh herbs, with subtle floral undertones.
Palate: Crisp and vibrant, with flavors of lemon, lime, passionfruit, and a touch of grassiness. The blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon offers a harmonious balance of fruitiness and acidity.
Finish: Lingering and refreshing, leaving a clean and zesty aftertaste.

Moss Wood酒莊成立於1969年,現由Keith和Clare Musford夫婦擁有。它位於瑪格麗特河的Wilyabrup分區,由於有利的氣候條件,該地區是生產世界一流葡萄酒的理想地區。 Moss Wood是瑪格麗特河的創始酒莊之一,獲得了評論家詹姆斯哈利戴最高(五星級)評級。他們的赤霞珠也是Langton's澳洲葡萄酒分類中22種被評為「傑出」的葡萄酒之一。紅酒採用波爾多葡萄品種:赤霞珠、梅洛、馬爾貝克和小維多,可以輕鬆與同樣價位的波爾多列級酒相媲美。

這款酒是Moss Wood酒莊的Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2017年,是一款令人愉悅的長相思和塞米翁混釀,展現了酒莊對於釀造卓越葡萄酒的專注與執著。葡萄是精心挑選自Ribbon Vale葡萄園,該園以其理想的生長條件和風土而聞名。

對於這兩個品種的葡萄,我們都採用了手工採摘和整串榨汁的方式,將果汁沉澱在不銹鋼罐中。清澈的果汁隨後被轉移到不銹鋼罐中,並進行多種酵母菌的接種。一旦發酵開始,葡萄酒被轉移到容量為228公升的法國橡木桶中,其中沒有新桶,然後陳釀3個月。我們更喜歡使用陳舊的橡木桶,因為它可以讓葡萄酒發展出良好的口感,而不會被木質特徵過於突出地掩蓋果香。

在陳釀期結束時,所有的酒桶都被轉移並混合在不銹鋼罐中,用膨潤土進行蛋白穩定處理,然後進行無菌過濾,於2017年7月12日裝瓶。
