Moss Wood. Among its prestigious offerings, the Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 stands out as a testament to the region's winemaking prowess and dedication to quality.

Origins and Vineyard:

The story of Moss Wood dates back to 1969 when Dr. Bill Pannell and his wife Sandra purchased a 4.45-hectare property in Wilyabrup, Margaret River. Over the years, their passion for winemaking and dedication to producing premium wines led them to acquire the nearby Ribbon Vale Estate in 2000. This acquisition marked a significant expansion for Moss Wood, allowing them to incorporate the distinct terroir of Ribbon Vale into their portfolio.

The Ribbon Vale vineyard is characterized by its gravelly loam soils and a maritime-influenced climate, ideal for cultivating Cabernet Sauvignon of exceptional quality. The 2018 vintage benefitted from near perfect growing conditions, with moderate temperatures and well-distributed rainfall ensuring optimal ripening of the grapes.
