Moss Wood’s Ribbon Vale vineyard is planted close to the original estate in Wilyabrup although always creates more elegant wines thanks to its slightly higher and south facing vineyards, which is not a bad thing.

This is classic merlot in many ways – good colour but not especially deep and then it’s instantly bursting with fragrant redcurrant, cedar and dried herb fruits well matched to largely old oak. 5% cabernet franc has also provided a pretty leafy edge. The palate is then dry, fleshy and juicy – waves of red and black fruits are supported by silky tannins which are beautifully balanced before a long and bright finish. It is already open for business and well suited to roast duck or chicken.
