Margaret River, South West Australia

Moss Wood

Moss Wood Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

A whiff of oak initially. Minty, herbaceous, plum and mulberry. The assertive tannins in its youth are resolving but still 5 to 10 years in front of it in a cool cellar. Balanced, elegant yet medium plus bodied at the same time. The quintessential Margaret River Cabernet. Have been a long time fan of Moss Wood and in summary, over the years, not as herbal as usual with more cassis and black currant in this excellent vintage. — 9 days ago

Cullen Wines

Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2018

Blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc, deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits and notes of herb spice and earthy notes. On the palate flavors of black cherry and blackberry with tobacco, dried herbs and cacao notes. Long finish, fine tannins, nice acidity, ending with fruit, tobacco, oak and cacao notes. — a month ago

Ribbon Vale Margaret River Merlot 2019

Thank you Miss Wood for sending over this sample bottle of your 2019 Ribbon Vale Merlot.

It’s drinking absolutely beautifully in its youth, however I can imagine with a bit of time in the cellar, it’s going to be exceptional with some extra age on it.

It’s 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc.

I found it an enticing brilliant garnet red colour in the glass. On the nose it smells of fresh cherries, raspberries and blackberries with a hint of floral perfume, leather and vanilla. It’s silky smooth and super balanced on the palate round s delicious ‘I need more’ finish. Gorgeous!

All opinions are my own. Drink what you enjoy!

Reserve Chardonnay 2014

Quite rare Margaret River Chardonnay
Brilliant golden color
I must admit i thought it could have shown better
I must admit i am now drinking definitely different stuff lately
I must admit i am sure this wine has his lovers as it should
But once I realised that the hangover i had the day after was only matched with similar experiences when i was in Melbourne I start to question on other aspect that have nothing to do with the flavors or the arguable beauty of the wine itself.
Sulphites? What else?I leave it there..

Last week i had a full two days in a Natural wine fair close to Verona(i didn't go to Vinitaly on purpose, i can't stand that chaos anymore) and haven't had a hint of a headache at all... and i swear i have been tasting hard.
This shade of drinking starts to be(and probably it has been for a while) quite a strong factor in my wine choices
Cheers!

Woodlands

'Margaret' Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Enticing mature Cabernet smell of Plum Mocha and black currant - Barb said dusty chest of drawers. and a delicious palate. Excellent Margaret River Cabernet particularly for Woodlands’ 2nd string Cuvée. From a good vintage in 2010 with many years to go. Only 2 bottles left from an original dozen. — a month ago

Leeuwin Estate

Art Series Margaret River Chardonnay 2014

Quite a pale lemon yellow. Smoky oak and struck match sulphides with ripe grapefruit. Not as much dried pear character as normal but still unmistakably Leeuwin Art Series Chardonnay with M+ Intensity, albeit experimenting with an understated style with this vintage. Subsequent vintages went back to the more full bodied style. — a month ago
