Case: 6 bottles

Moss Wood Amy's is a bold blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot grapes. Its nose gives off lifted aromas of mulberries and blackcurrants. These dark fruit scents are followed by white pepper, complex cedar & tarry notes, coupled with musky perfumes. The palate is dominated by juicy blackberry and red currant flavours that are accompanied by well-balanced acidity and firm tannins.

  • Colour and condition: deep brick red, in bright condition
    Nose: lifted dark fruit aromas of mulberries and blackcurrants, backed by some spicy, white pepper notes from the Malbec and musk-like perfumes from the Petit Verdot; complex cedar and tarry notes in the background
    Palate: As with the nose, dominated by dark fruit notes, with juicy blackberry and red currant flavours; the acidity and tannin are firm but not in any way aggressive and are well balanced

    Region: Margaret River, WA
    Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot
    Alcohol: 13.5%


    Moss Wood 2017 Amy’s is more precocious than usual and it seems to have realised that it is being released at the same time as the 2015 Estate Cabernet and so it has to distract you from opening any bottles of the Grand Vin by being more come hither than of late. Instead of being a mini-Moss Wood with the accompanying tannin and grunt, Amy’s carries out the job of being a rousing support band, knocking out crowd-pleasing, forward-drinking flavours. It effortlessly imprints the Moss Wood brand on your wine brain such that, one day, when you find yourself confronted with a list of mature MR Cabs, the chances are Amy’s will be there, at the back of your brain, urging you to buy a smart bottle of its portfolio partner. It is the ultimate vinous teamwork working in perfect harmony.


    Points: 92
    A blend of cabernet merlot malbec and petit verdot. It’s still so young but showing excellent fruit concentration. Lush and sweet with juicy fruitiness as you might expect from such a recent vintage. A wine that you can tuck into over the next few years.
