A real Claret or Bordeaux style here from Moss Wood thanks to its elegance, focus and good structure. Only moderate ruby in colour, yet immediately it shows a crystal clear expression of cool climate Cabernet Sauvignon thanks to fragrant red currant, blackcurrant, leaf and cedar all wrapped up in a gentle blanket of French oak. There is then great tension on the palate between bright acidity, sinewy tannins and savoury dark berry fruits which show exceptional intensity and precision, which drive through to a long and vibrant finish. Balance is also outstanding making for a wine that will offer plenty for at least 15 years.
