The Moss Wood Amy’s is produced in a style specifically intended to have early appeal. The generous fruit characters and well-balanced tannin structure ensure it can be enjoyed as a youngster.
Of course, Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon has a tremendous reputation for cellaring and the 2018 Amy’s will certainly short term cellaring of say 5 years but we encourage customers to appreciate and enjoy its attractive fruit flavours now and save space in their cellar for our Ribbon Vale or Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignons.
