Peter Michael Sauvignon Blanc Knights Valley l'Apres-midi 1998
The 1998 L'Apres-Midi is now solely sourced from our own estate vineyard on the slopes of Mount St. Helena. Grapes were hand-picked and hand-sorted, whole cluster pressed and then barrel fermented in French oak with 60% indigenous yeasts. This 100% Sauvignon Blanc was ”sur lie" aged in the barrel for ten months and bottled in August, 1999.
