2017 Michael Klouda Wines

Grapes Mourvèdre
Colour Red
Origin USA, California
Other Practising 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.

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine 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.

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.
