Moss Wood is a premium wine producer located in the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia. The area is regarded as one of Australia's premium grape growing regions. Proprietors Clare and Keith Mugford enjoy the challenge of consistently producing high quality wines at Moss Wood. All decisions made in the vineyard and winery are based on the effect they will have on the quality of the wine. Rich Chardonnay fruit flavours - complexity - a blending of the flavours of Chardonnay fruit, yeast characters from the fermentation process and smokey, spicy characters of new oak. Burgundian influences apply here, with ageing on lees for 9 months in French barriques, without stirring, with a significant proportion undergoing malolactic fermentation. All Chardonnay batches are barrel fermented in 100% new French oak. Lifted combination of fruit aromas and blossom-like cents, reminiscent of honeysuckle. Aromas of nectarine, peach and passionfruit with interesting complex tones of malt biscuit, caramel and charry oak.
