Description
Mitsuko's Vineyard was acquired and named in 1989 by Jan Shrem, the founder of Clos Pegase, who named it after his wife as a surprise Valentine's Day gift. Jan filled a gift box with soil from the new vineyard, wrapped it in a ribbon and excitedly presented it to her. Mitsuko, thinking she'd been the victim of a practical joke, was furious until her husband explained the source of the soil and told her he'd named the 365-acre vineyard for her in honour of 'every day of the year I love you.' Situated just three kilometres from San Francisco Bay, the vineyard is relatively cool - though clearly nowhere near as cool as Jan under pressure - and creates elegant, bright Chardonnay brimming with tropical fruit flavours.
Tasting Notes
Mitsuko's Vineyard is a sprawling 365 acres in the Los Carneros appellation within Napa Valley, due north of San Pablo Bay. The growing conditions in this calcareous, rolling soils moondance section at 300m is windy as hell and makes for some pretty intense chardonnay from low yields. If nothing else it is texture noted on the mid-palate with thanks to extended lees contact and repeated bâttonage. That and wood-induced spice complexity. Mitsuko's finish is unrelenting due to and in addendum from acidity driven dénouement. It really is cool climate chardonnay ... Drink 2017-2023. Score - 92.
