peter michael clos du ciel wine bottle

Peter Michael Winery, Clos du Ciel 2016

RRP £377

Floral and raspberry aromas give way to surprisingly silky raspberry and floral notes. A touch of orange peel and some lovely dried herbs emerge in the finish along with dried flower petals. Good acidity and length with only richness to hint at the substantial alcohol. This is the most gently sloped of the three vineyards, yet the highest in elevation, starting at 1,275ft above sea level and rising to 1,400ft, earning it the moniker ‘the vineyard in the sky’.
