Professional Wine Reviews for Moss Wood Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc Ribbon Vale 2013

Rated 90 by Stephen Tanzer
Bright straw. Pungent, incisive aromas of orange, pear, quinine and ginger, with a hint of chamomile. Shows very good density and richness but also lively cut, with complex flavors of honeydew, citrus zest and bitter quinine. Finishes long, spicy and vibrant, with very good cut.

Additional Information on Moss Wood Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc Ribbon Vale 2013

Winery: Moss Wood

Region: Margaret River

The Margaret River region of Australia is one of the country's primary wine producing regions, being responsible for producing up to and around twenty percent of the country's wines. The excellent terroirs of this south-westerly region, coupled with the brisk oceanic breezes and superb levels of balanced humidity result in healthy grapevines, offering high yields of consistent high quality. Indeed, the climate of Margaret River has been often compared to that of Bordeaux in France, something which bodes very well for vintners operating in the region. Both red and white wine grape varietals are grown widely throughout Margaret River, with the cooler areas of the region offering superb Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc varietals, and the warmer parts of the region producing the ever popular Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes which Australia is best known for.

Country: Australia

Whilst every Australian state has some level of wine production, it is in South Australia and on the island of Tasmania where the finest wines are made to the highest quantities. Here, the scorching Australian sun is a little tamer, and the heat is tempered by brisk oceanic winds, making the climate of these regions ideal for vineyard cultivation. The Tamar Valley on Tasmania has been making waves internationally in recent years, as both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grape varietals are thriving there and resulting in hugely flavorful wines, which are at once distinctly Australian, yet remain unique and interesting enough to surprise and impress. Elsewhere in the country, the Syrah grape (known locally as Shiraz) reigns supreme, as the long, hot summers allow these grapes to ripen fully and lend their intensely fruit-forward character to the ruby red Australian wines, which have such international appeal.
