Peter Michael Sauvignon Blanc Knights Valley l'Apres-midi 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Grown along side of our Les Pavots Bordeaux red varietals, the Sauvignon Blanc for L’Après-Midi 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 its fruity, zesty character. 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.

From the beginning, the wine growing philosophy was modeled on the French tradition infused with a few modern influences: One, the vineyard terroir would be the single most important feature. Two, the wines would be elegant rather than overstated. Three, there would be a hundred-year commitment to the development of a great estate. Read less

Tasting Notes:

Intense and multi-layered, the bouquet and flavors are dominated by honeysuckle, hawthorn, gooseberry, lime, white flesh peach, William pear and dried apricot, completed by elegant touches of acacia, white pepper, guava, quince and wet stone. The mouth feel is seamless. The strong mineral background, a stamp of the estate, counterbalances the overall richness, giving a superb refinement. The finish is layered, very long and elegant. Built to age, the 2006 L’Après-Midi is already revealing itself.
