Moss Wood Amy's Blend, Margaret River, Western Australia, 2019
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon 75%, Merlot 13%, Malbec 7%, Petit Verdot 5% in oak for 16 months (no new oak used)
Colour: Youthful, deep brick red.
Nose: Lifted fragrances on the nose with all the aromas of the varietal mix. Plum and white pepper from the Malbec, blackberry from Merlot, dark jube from the Petit Verdot, all backing up the classic Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon statement of blueberry and red currant. For the moment, all this vibrancy masks some nice chocolate and tarry complexity and no doubt this will reveal itself further over time.
Palate: The wine shows its Yallingup origins with bright blueberry fruit flavours being dominant at the start and then the finish is all about red currant, chocolate and liquorice. The weight is medium to full bodied and the tannins are firm but nicely complemented by the fruit making the wine a very enjoyable youngster.
A classic Bordeaux blend from one of Australia’s most regarded wine makers. This wine is intended to be served with the meat course of a meal and would benefit from an hours breathing and or decanting.
This wine is for people who enjoy a little more power and structure to their red wines.
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 2019 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.
"Perfumed notes of wild raspberries, fresh plums, violets, lemon peel, black pepper, sage and star anise. Medium-bodied with bright acidity and silky tannins. Vibrant and savory with a delicious finish. Cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec and petit verdot."
92/100 points, James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com
"A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, malbec and petit verdot. Deliciously intense red with juicy cassis, plum, blueberry flavours smothering spicy oak characters. Very approachable now but will become even more complex and interesting with bottle age."
95/100 points, Bob Campbell, The Real review, April 2021
