peter michael ma danseuse wine bottle

Peter Michael Winery, Ma Danseuse 2016

RRP £492

This wine offers pretty floral aromas in addition to scents of bright cherry fruit. On the palate, wonderfully bright cherry and floral flavours mix with cranberry and a hint of raspberry jam. Touches of dried herbs and citrus peel linger on the finish, adding complexity and a bit of gravitas to the wine. Nice acidity and length. On the richer side, to be sure, but well balanced. Planted between 1,200 and 1,400ft of elevation, this vineyard faces north-northeast and is the coolest and most exposed of the three vineyard sites, as well as the northernmost. Ma Danseuse (‘my dancer’) is
an ode to Lady Maggie Michael, whom Sir Peter
met in a dance class at the age of 17.
