Peter Michael Chardonnay Knights Valley Point Rouge 2004
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 2004 vintage, 14 barrels were gradually isolated from the original 360 barrels produced. The final cuvee was completed in December 2005 and is com¬prised of 1 3 barrels from the vineyards of La Carriere, Belle Cote, Ma Belle-Fille and the Alexander Mountain Estate. The judicious assemblage benefited from an extended ‘sur lies' maturation.
Food Pairings for Peter Michael Chardonnay Knights Valley Point Rouge
This pinnacle Chardonnay of an exceptional vintage is extraordi¬narily defined, offering a 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 brulce, chestnut skin, white truffle and coconut, an extremely refined and already complex bouquet. The palate offers a rare harmony of the components as well as an extraordinary persistence. 2004 Point Rouge will gain even more complexity in 3-4 years and then continue to age gracefully.
Aged 16 months in French Oak.
Notes: 100% naturally fermented using native yeast 100% barrel fermented (French oak from artisan coopers)
