Peter Michael Chardonnay Knights Valley Ma Belle-Fille 2003
At the highest elevation on the estate, the greater influence on Ma Belle-Fille of the marine breeze results in cooler daily temperatures in the Summer and Autumn months. Situated far above the summer fog ceiling and exposed to the southeast, the vineyard receives the very first rays of sunshine each morning and remains sunny all day long. This full insolation combined with cooler temperatures creates unique conditions for the ripening of the fruit: maturation is reached earliest among all of the PMW vineyards.
