Story

"2015 was a record warm year, and the wine is riper and richer than previous vintages of Linda Vista. The moderate alcohol and mouthwatering acidity that is a trademark of that vineyard is still very much present, but some of the typical Linda Vista lemon oil has been replaced by a riper luscious creamines.... With Golden Delicious apples, yellow peaches, musk melon, and honey on the nose and through to the palate, the medium acidity is balanced by pleasant fleshiness, finishing very clean with a hint of minerality. Refreshing and with moderate alcohol, this wine is all about pleasure, begging to be drunk up, with some oysters or a roast chicken and a big smile." More at Matthiasson.com
