2015 Michael Klouda Wines
|Grapes||Petit Verdot, Cab Franc, Cab Sauv|
Gorgeously spicy, clove and cinnamon spots draw out the elegant blueberry and sweet mulberry fruit notes, the mid-palate here is plummy and joyously harmonious. Minimal intervention but gorgeous attention to detail mean these wines are expressive, fine and perfectly balanced. Arguably this is more Tuscan, more Bolgheri - than Bordeaux in style and a long way from what you might expect to be made near the 'Frisco Bay! Sophisticated and slick but not over polished. This is another class act from our friend in Lodi. L&S (Apr 2017)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Michael Klouda Wines
We were delighted to meet Michael on a recent trip to Lodi, the Californian heartland for great Zinfandel. Fresh faced and gently spoken Michael is a natural talent, crafting subtle, elegant wines from some prize plots in Lodi. His day job is with the brilliant Michael David winery, but the real magic happens with his own small scale project where he selects plots and picks early as he strives for freshness in the juice and some lift in the wines.
Incredible natural ability and a fresh, open-minded attitude mean his wines are some of the very best we have tasted with impressive tight lines for wines from this part of the world.
Surely a star of the future Michael is one to watch.
You know, you can be too traditional. Ring the changes, ditch the claret, bin the Burgundy, say "non" to Europe. Since Columbus sailed the ocean blue back in 1492 there's been a New World, and that New World is keen to sell us wine. Fragrant New Zealand Sauvignon, gutsy Californian Zinfandel, elegant Argie Pinot Noir, elegant Australian and some new and exciting Mourvedre from Lodi await. Tuck in.
