Tasting Notes

With a richer, bolder expression, a testament to the challenging vintage, the 2016 Old Vine Series Mev Kirsten has a gorgeous nose, showing dusty pineapple, apple skin with white spice and baked earth. In the mouth, the wine expands to show greater depth with a delicate nuttiness and mineral tension, with the subtle growing flavor of arugula, moving slightly waxy across the mid-palate. Medium to full-bodied, the mouthfeel is well textured and has an amazing liveliness to the long complex and lingering finish. Drink 2019 - 2038
