This wine is an absolute joy from first sniff to final sip. Very much on the red fruit spectrum with cherry, mulberry and strawberry fruit concentration. It is deliciously open in style with a bright juicy acidity, plenty of rich red fruits on the palate with just a hint of maceration and then a whiff of something wild and scrubby. L&S (Mar 2020)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles of wine (or 9 litre equivalent) or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified (4.5 litres) to get the discounted 'case price' for each bottle.

Intense nose of créme de cassis and sweet blackberry. Elegant palate showing some Griotte cherry juice and a hint of dry roses, baking spice. Easy drinking. Drinking range: 2021 - 2023 Rating: 88 Decanter Magazine (Jan 2021)

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.

New World Mixed Case

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.
