Moss Wood Chardonnay 2010

Margaret River

About the Region

A new wine region by Australian standards, first planted to grapes only in the late 1960s, Margaret River, in southwestern Australia, does well with numerous grapes — most prominently chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, sémillon, and cabernet sauvignon, though its low-key, well-structured shiraz has many fans. Most of the region's 140-plus producers are small-scale.
