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. Of course, Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon has a tremendous reputation for cellaring and the 2018 Amy’s will certainly short term cellaring of say 5 years but we encourage customers to appreciate and enjoy its attractive fruit flavours now and save space in their cellar for our Ribbon Vale or Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignons.
Colour and condition: Deep, brick red hue, almost blue notes; bright condition.
Nose: 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.
Palate: 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.
