2022 Moss Wood Amy’s
Moss Wood’s entry level Cabernets, Amy’s, is a Bordeaux-styled blend that’s produced in an earlier drinking style loaded with generous fruit that shows plenty of flesh. Sourced from the Glenmore vineyard just north of Yallingup. It’s a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Maturation takes place in 228 litre older French oak barrels for a period of 18 months.
Dense midnight black heart with a deep dark red hue. Elevated ripe blackcurrant, plum and liquorice scents are trailed by some vanillin cedar, earth and faint mint notes. Mid weighted, fleshy blackcurrant and plum fruits are lent freshness by a dash of blueberry. Fine polished tannin structure with some earth, vanillin cedar and delicate bay leaf accents lingering through the back half. Youthful with exuberant blue to dark fruits lining the generous mid length finish.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
