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

With over sixteen thousand hectares of Australian land now under vine, Australia has become something of a world leader in regards to wine production. One of Australia's key attributes to their success has been their willingness to leave traditional vineyard practices to one side, and develop techniques which are perfectly suited to a New World country. Modern Australian wineries take into consideration the climate and the unique soil types which cover much of their country, and have had fantastic results from cross-breeding programs and blending practices which make the most of the grape varietals which thrive most successfully there, notably the Shiraz and Chardonnay grapes. In recent years, Australia has been lauded as the 'most influential' wine producing country in the world, and the rest of the New World is looking down under for inspiration, and the ability to produce comparable fine wines on their own terrain.
