Moss Wood Chardonnay Margaret River, West Australia – 2017
This wine was awarded 99/100pts by James Halliday in his 2020 Wine Companion and was his highest rated Australian Chardonnay of the year!
I thought Moss Wood’s 2016 Chardonnay was the best I have tasted, but the winery believe their 2017 is the best Chardonnay they have ever made! The growing season was excellent and rather cool for the region and has produced a Chardonnay with the perfect combination of fruit depth, complexity and structure. Flavours of stone fruit, orange marmalade, honey and roasted almonds are underpinned with crisp acidity and firm enough structure to ensure this wine can develop for 15-20 years in bottle. Top Margaret River Chardonnay just goes from strength to strength!
