Food Pairings for Peter Michael Chardonnay Knights Valley Point Rouge
Point Rouge, our consummate Chardonnay, is our winemaker's selection of the absolute top barrels from the entire vintage. These barrels were singled out for their exceptional quality and how the\ enhanced the overall blend. From the 2003 vintage, 14 barrels from the vineyards of La Carriere, Belle-Cote, Ma Belle-Fille and the Alexander Mountain Estate were gradually isolated from the original 360.The cuvee was completed in December 2004 and benefited from an extended 'sur lies' maturation.
The pinnacle Chardonnay of an exceptional vintage, the 2003 Point Rouge offers a subtle symbiosis of richness, complexity and elegance. Orange rind, citrus oils, golden delicious apple, William pear, acacia, candied pineapple and wet stone notes create, with hints of honeysuckle, creme brulee, chestnut skin, white truffle and coconut, a refined and already complex bouquet. Rich and seamless, the palate offers a rare harmony of its components and an extraordinary persistence. This wine will gain even more complexity in 3-4 years and should age gracefully for a decade.
307 cases 750ml bottles, 9 cases 1.5L bottles produced.
Aged 16 months in French Oak.
Notes: 100% naturally fermented using native yeast 100% barrel fermented (French oak from artisan coopers)
