Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Merlot 2020


The twin to the Ribbon Vale Cabernet Sauvignon, this is the Merlot dominant version with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc in support. This is initially a pretty and elegant style, the Cabernet Franc adding delicious subtlety. The wine bursts with vibrant red currant, graphite and pine needle aromas, stylish oak couched in just behind. The palate then shows an impressive mix of concentrated, fleshy fruits and structure – leafy, mulberry flavours with gravel complexity underpinned by firm chalky tannins. The balance and length are exceptional and this may in time become something truly special.
