Moss Wood include parcels of exposed grapes with no leaves, others without leaf removal. The former is a more complex style of Chardonnay with accentuated malty and roasted nut characters while the latter tends to retain citrus, honeysuckle and peach blossom aromatics whilst looking prettier. Before assembling, there are extensive tastings to check on the choice of barrel and to compare the different levels of exposure. The results are fascinating, a grand total of just a few hundred cases are made each year, Moss Wood Chardonnay is always beaut.
Chardonnay is hand picked and whole bunch pressed, the free run juice and pressings are kept separate, cold settled for a couple of days and fined to remove excess phenolics. Batches are transferred to fermenters, a small percentage of lighter settling solids is included, warmed and inoculated with pure yeast cultures. After a day of activity, the ferments are racked to a selection of seasoned and new 225 litre French oak barriques, vinified to dryness, assembled and treated to full malolactic. The winery air conditioning system is adjusted to keep ferments at lower temperatures between 8⁰C and 20⁰C. A total of twenty months in oak is followed by bentonite fining and sterile filtration.
TASTING NOTES
Medium straw hue. Lifted and complex, nectarine and blossoms, lemon marmalade and lime, long term barrel aging adds malt, roast nut and cinnamon notes. The front palate shows generous ripe fruits, full body and smooth texture. Generous peach, marmalade and roast almond flavours, a balanced astringency that builds the mouthfeel but doesn't impinge on the texture, giving a long, sweet, round feel.

About Moss Wood Winery
Moss Wood is a premium wine producer located at Margaret River, highly regarded as one of Australia's best wine producing regions
A study by viticulturist, Dr John Gladstones, first drew attention to the suitability of the Margaret River region for making wine. Gladstones believed that the soil found in the area, clay subsoil covered by gravelly loam, was ideal for viticulture. He compared the Margaret River climate with that of Bordeaux, indicating that both had an average rainfall of over 1000mms and an absence of temperature extremes, because of the influence of the sea on three sides.
