Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Elsa Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Winery: Moss wood
Country: Australia
Region: Margaret river
Body: Light medium
Varietal: Sauvignon blanc

The Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Elsa Sauvignon Blanc is bright with a light to medium straw hue. The nose shows lifted scents of lychee, gooseberry and passionfruit, with caramel and a spiciness, reminiscent of nutmeg, with freshly baked pastry.  In the background is a touch of toasty oak. The initial impression of the wine follows the nose with generous caramel and lychee flavours sitting over full body and lively acidity, with leafy notes at the end.  There is some tannin but the finish is clean, courtesy of the concentration and good length of flavour.

From a relatively small crop and with good concentration, there is no doubt the Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Elsa Sauvignon Blanc will cellar well.  The lively fruit notes will form the major part of the wine for at least 5 years but as it approaches 10 years of age, the secondary notes should start to play a role. This wine can be cellared for 10 years to extract its full potential.
