Peter Michael Chardonnay Knights Valley Mon Plaisir 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Open and intense, this wine is indeed a true pleasure, displaying an exquisite bouquet of lemon cream, candied pineapple and honey as well as tropical fruits such as guava and mango. The palate is rich, full-bodied and creamy with beautiful fresh lemon, golden delicious apple, brioche and mineral notes. Hints of pain grillé and hazelnut complete the long final mouth feel of this wine.

From the beginning, the wine growing philosophy was modeled on the French tradition infused with a few modern influences: One, the vineyard terroir would be the single most important feature. Two, the wines would be elegant rather than overstated. Three, there would be a hundred-year commitment to the development of a great estate. Read less

Tasting Notes:

Aromas of candied orange, lemon drop, dry apricot, dry fig and Mirabelle plum, interact with touches of vanilla and exotic elements such as mango, coconut and pineapple to form this remarkable multi-layered and intense bouquet. Complexity, richness and concentration characterize the palate of this dramatic edition of Cuvée Indigène, promised to age gracefully for at least a decade.

Open and intense, this wine is indeed a true pleasure, displaying an exquisite bouquet of lemon cream, candied pineapple and honey as well as tropical fruits such as guava and mango. The palate is rich, full-bodied and creamy with beautiful fresh lemon, golden delicious apple, brioche and mineral notes. Hints of pain grillé and hazelnut complete the long final mouth feel of this wine.

438 cases 750ml bottles, 80 cases 1.5L bottles produced.

Notes: 100% naturally fermented using native yeast 75% barrel fermented (French oak from selected artisan coopers)
