Origin USA, California
Other Practicing Organic, Certified Organic
District Lodi
ABV 13.5%

We first met Michael as he released his 2014 Mourvedre which was a complete humdinger and soon became a huge favourite for lovers of Rhone style wines - but also wines with depth and spice and juicy lift. Three years on from his first effort at Mourvedre, this 2017 is brimming with his signature 'lightness of touch'. There is some good dusty grip in the middle and then the lovely well sculpted dark fruit builds - there is a rare brightness to the palate too which distinguishes it from many wines from Lodi - another joyous release from this exciting talent.

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.

Summer Mixed Case

Predictably this summer is looking as unpredictable as ever, so we have put together a mixed case to cover all bases: Hydropathe rosé for when the sun does decide to come out, Delaporte Sancerre to match the summer vegetable dishes and Kumeu River ‘Estate’ Chardonnay for the richer meals. As for the reds we have Bilbo from La Réserve d'O for the cooler, drizzlier days and finally the Mourvèdre from Michael Klouda the perfect match for barbecue.
