Misha’s Vineyard 2015 Dress Circle Pinot Gris and Cadenza LH Gewurztraminer

28-Jan-2016
Misha Wilkinson reports that the sales of her 2014 ‘Dress Circle’ Pinot Gris and ‘Cadenza’ Late Harvest Gewurztraminer have been particularly strong, necessitating the earlier than normal release of the 2015 vintage bottlings of these wines. It’s an enviable position to have such demand for the wines, but with these two, it’s not a surprise, as the wines are especially good (click here to see my reviews). The wines from Misha’s Vineyard continue to improve as the vines grow in maturity, and winemaker Olly Masters has been working on greater textural qualities and subtle complexities with the use of indigenous yeasts, barrel fermentation and lees contact. Misha reports that 2015 was an excellent vintage, so this review of the Pinot Gris and LH Gewurztraminer serve as a foretaste of what is to come later in the year. www.mishasvineyard.com
