Cellar for up to 13 years. Serve chilled.

Moss Wood are known throughout the Margaret River region for being one of the area’s early pioneering wineries with a range of elegant wines inspired by the stunning local terroir. Clare & Keith Mugford have skilfully led the winery through the past four decades, building a reputation for excellence and a cellar full of remarkable, long-lived wines which can hold their own against Australia’s finest.

The estate is located in Wilyabrup in the northern part of Margaret River which enjoys a cool maritime climate and gravelly loam soils with some clay. These conditions help to preserve plenty of freshness and aromatics in the grapes, ensuring perfect poise and balance. This Chardonnay is crafted from estate-grown fruit which is carefully harvested by hand. The fermentation process is begun in stainless steel tanks and then continued at the halfway point in 50% new French oak barrels.

The wine is then blended and returned to the barrels for a 12-14 month maturation period. This long ageing in oak helps to add a rich, creamy texture, smooth tannins and intense notes of vanilla, fresh cream, and toasty oak to the bright citrus, peach and honeysuckle notes from the Chardonnay grape itself. Robust and powerful, this full-bodied white is a great wine to keep in the cellar for another decade, although it can also be enjoyed now alongside roast chicken, rich pasta dishes or mature hard cheeses.
