Food Pairings for Peter Michael Sauvignon Blanc Knights Valley l'Apres-midi
The 1997 L'Apres-Midi is a unique blend of wine combining our traditionally-sourced Howell Mountain vineyard with an addition from our new estate vineyard on the slopes of Mount St. Helena. Grapes were hand-sorted, whole cluster pressed and then barrel fermented in French oak with 50% indigenous yeasts. This 100% Sauvignon Blanc was "sur lie" aged in the barrel for ten months and bottled in August, 1998. Following a mild winter, an early bud break and a warm growing season resulted in one of the earliest harvests on record. The cool, high elevation and summer-morning fog favorably influenced the vineyard climate, enhancing grape quality and flavors—especially important in the warm growing season of 1997. Our tastings reveal an exceptional vintage.
Gooseberry fruit, grapefruit oils, and lemon zest aromas are complemented by a hint of sweet oak. With a full fruit entry, the flavors exude a variety of citrus including pink grapefruit, lemons and tangerines with pleasing slate-like mineral tones evoking terroir.
