External Reviews for Peter Michael Sauvignon Blanc Knights Valley l'Apres-midi
Fragrant, with pretty floral, citrus, melon and passion fruit scents that are arresting, turning rich and complex on the palate, with layers of fig and apricot folding in on the finish, gaining richness and depth... Wine Spectator. A Sauvignon Blanc wine from California in USA. 2004 Michael Winery, Peter Sauvignon Blanc l'Apres Midi 1500ml
Grown beside our Les Pavots Bordeaux red varietals, our Sauvignon Blanc has taken to the cool slopes of Mount St. Helena. The grapes were picked and sorted by hand, whole cluster pressed and then naturally fermented in barrel. No malolactic fermentation was conducted in order to preserve all of the fruity and zesty character of the Sauvignon Blanc. All lots were aged separately on their lees for 9 months with gentle bâtonnage. Judicious blending of these lots composed a cuvée most representative of its terroir.
The very intense and multi-layered bouquet of honeysuckle, gooseberry, lime, white ﬂ esh peach, honeyed grapefruit and dry apricot is completed by elegant touches of acacia, white pepper, quince and wet stone. Rich and zesty, the mouth feel is reminiscent of the aromas and seamless. The strong mineral background, a stamp of the L’Après-Midi terroir, counterbalances the overall richness. The ﬁnish is layered, very long and elegant. Built to age, this L’Après-Midi is already intensively revealing itself.
1424 cases 750ml bottles, 59 cases 1.5L bottles produced.
Aged 9 months in French Oak.
