Winemaker Notes

The wine has a medium straw color, with some green tints and its condition is bright. On the nose, it is ethereal, with lifted perfumes of lemon sherbet, green apples, honeysuckle, and figs. Underneath there are just some early suggestions of the variety’s complex features like lanolin and mushroom. Always expect our Semillon to be relatively firm as a youngster and this wine certainly has good acidity and tannin. However, the fruit flavors of limes, figs, and lychees are rich, generous and mouth-filling, so the wine displays softness and drinkability only seen in the great years.

James Suckling
A bright and fresh yet complex young semillon. It has lemons and white nectarines gently dressed in some biscuity and nutty aromas. The palate has bright acid spark and a fleshy smooth build into the finish. Drink now or hold. Screw cap.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Moss Wood Wilyabrup Semillon is an excellent wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine is zesty and bright. Enjoy its distinctive aromas and flavors of zesty citrus and savory spices with longneck clam sashimi with thinly-sliced scallions and light soy. (Tasted: February 5, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Moss Wood, Australia
Moss Wood Winery Video

Moss Wood was established as a specialist, high-quality winery. This was its raison d’être and still provides the motivation for its continued existence. The proprietors of Moss Wood, Clare and Keith Mugford, have been making wine and tending the vineyard at Moss Wood since 1984 and 1979, respectively. It is their belief that all decisions made in the vineyard, or at the winery, are based on the effect they will have on the quality of the wine. As a new wine producing area, Margaret River has a short viticultural history, therefore winemakers need to be continually reassessing their soil management practices and the performance of their vines if they are to understand the viticulture of the region and obtain the best results in the vineyard. The Moss Wood and Mugford names are synonymous with uncompromising quality.

Home to some of Australia’s most elegant and long-lived red and white wines, Margaret River is situated in the farthest reaches of Western Australia. Relatively warm and dry, the region is cooled by breezes from the Indian Ocean. Margaret River takes some inspiration from Bordeaux, producing top-quality Cabernet Sauvignon with firm structure, mouthwatering acidity, balanced alcohol and notes of herbs and spice. Complex, age-worthy Chardonnays are another regional specialty. Also common here are refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, as well as earthy, aromatic Bordeaux Red Blends.

An unassuming but noble variety capable of wines with considerable structure, depth and length, Sémillon has the power to create wines that improve for several decades. It is the perfect partner to the aromatic and vivid Sauvignon Blanc; the two are most commonly found blended in their home region of Bordeaux. Sémillon especially shines in Sauternes, one of the world’s greatest sweet wines. Somm Secret—Sémillon was so common in South Africa in the 1820s, covering 93% of the country’s vineyard area, it was simply referred to as Wyndruif, or “wine grape.”
