2018 MAHA Before Anyone Else

*Made with CCOF certified organic and DEMETER certified biodynamic grapes.

100% Clairette

BAE is an intriguing, textural, age worthy white wine that channels the great wines of Burgundy, Rhone, and Rioja. The Clairette couldn’t be happier here at the MAHA. Planted in a lower section with a fair amount of clay over limestone, it requires little attention, sets a modest crop and ripens AMAZING fruit. Fermented and aged in 45% new French and Hungarian barrels, the wine offers intoxicating aromas of exotic tropical fruits, melon, marzipan and white flowers. It transitions to an opulent and vivacious palate that has one salivating for the next sip…think Pavlov’s dog. While absolutely delicious out of the chute, this wine will evolve to a stratospheric level with 7-10 years of cellaring. Drink 2020-2025

"Brilliant straw-yellow. Ripe citrus and orchard fruit, succulent herb, honey and jasmine aromas are energized by hints of dusty minerals and ginger. Juicy and impressively concentrated, offering intense Meyer lemon, pear nectar and bitter quinine flavors that show excellent clarity and vibrant back-end lift. The floral and mineral notes resonate strongly on the youthfully chewy finish, which hangs on with impressive tenacity." 94 pts - Vinous Media
