Description

Starting with the 2015 vintage and going forward, the Mirabai will have 100% Maresh Vineyard fruit. The Mirabai 2015 is a selection of 21 barrels of wines from all of my blocks at Maresh except for the Red Barn Blocks: the Old Block (planted in 1970), the Long Rows (planted in 1970), the Star-of-Bethlehem Flower Block (planted in 1988) and Block 8 Pommard (1978). All of my wines in 2015 were 100% whole cluster. The colour is a shining, brilliant, transparent light red. The nose is full of sun-warmed Hood strawberries and a little spice, but not the sun of a hot summer day, but one of a late spring day, with both a welcome sunshine from above and a fresh coolness like the dew of a spring morning not yet warmed. There are soft minerals in this lithe, high energy, aerial Pinot, reminding me of hummingbirds, but with a certain trickiness of Tinkerbell. The vines are old and know themselves: this Mirabai has a twinkle in its eye with a seriousness that doesn’t need to be obvious.

Wine Cellarage Tasting Note: Elegant aromatics of red cherry, strawberry, orange zest and delicate spices rise from the glass. The wine is refined and velvety on the palate with great depth and minerality. I will describe the wine’s color as a jewellike gossamer crimson…very translucent. The delicate coloring coupled with the tremendous underlying power present in this wine creates a beautiful paradox. – Gretchen Dec
