Moss Wood Chardonnay 2018
The winemakers at Moss Wood say “…has been a strong consensus that this is the best Chardonnay we’ve made. The combination of fruit depth, complexity and structure is one we wish we could get every year.”
The enchanting nose overdelivers with generous aromatics of peaches and nectarines entwined with orange marmalade, honey, caramel and roast almonds. The wine replays those combinations on the rich and lively palate. Crisp acidity and a well-hidden but firm tannin ensure the exceptional cellaring structure.

Moss Wood Chardonnay 2017 - It only takes a millisecond to know you are in the presence of vinous royalty. This is a truly beautiful chardonnay, seamless perfection from the first sip. You know there has to be quality oak somewhere in the wine, and know that all the analytical numbers will be a Bo Derek 10. It is liquid gold.
Bob Campbell, The Real Review
Moss Wood Chardonnay 2017 - A weighty, flavoursome chardonnay firmly-structured and with good acidity. Peach, grapefruit, struck flint, mineral and spicy oak flavours, with a toasty and nutty lees influence. Slightly hard to read at this stage – needs time to open up.
