2016 Moraga


Bel Air Estate White

$115.00

 

Fresh peaches, honeysuckle, wet slate, and a hint of pineapple tickle your olfactory bulb on first examination. The nose is effusive and mirrored on the palate. The flavors are focused ripe peach, along with mandarin and lemon zest. There is a delicious core of sweet ripe fruit. The texture is unusually plush and voluptuous, as well as very mouth-coating. There is a tremendous tension between the acidity and decadent texture.

The vineyard may be in the middle of a residential neighborhood and a mile or so from the 405, but from the moment you clear the gate, you feel as if you are exploring the terroir of Tuscany in Italy or the Rhône Valley in France.

Moraga was founded in 1989 by Tom Jones, President and CEO of Northrop Corporation. The gravely and calcareous soils on the property are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and a small amount of Petit Verdot. The white wine is made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc.
