2019 Peter Michael "L'Apres-Midi" Knights Valley Sauvignon Blanc

SKU #1500732 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of green mango, cooked pear, lemon curd and quince. Lemon wax, flint and toasted almonds, too. It’s full-bodied with a creamy, oily texture. Dense and phenolic with fantastic concentration. Yet, it remains agile and always so balanced and focused. 90% sauvignon blanc and 10% semillon. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Sauvignon Blanc l'Apres Midi is composed of 90% Sauvignon Blanc (one-third is Musque Clone) and 10% Semillon, grown alongside Les Pavots in Knights Valley. Due to issues with fruit set, the crop was naturally a little smaller this year. Exuberant scents of passion fruit, gooseberries and lime cordial come bounding out of the glass with suggestions of honeysuckle, wild thyme and wet slate. The medium to full-bodied palate is chock-full of ripe citrus and tropical fruit flavors with a pleasant oiliness to the texture and plenty of freshness, finishing long and savory.

K&L Notes

Peter Michael describes the terroir and winemaking of this distinct bottling: "This predominately Sauvignon Blanc, White Bordeaux styled blend with just a touch of Semilion hails from two different estates with altitudes ranging from 1,000 to 1,200 feet within the Knights Valley. The soils are more rocky, volcanic Rhyolite which provide excellent drainage. This, alongside the impressive slopes paired with southerly facing vines helps create a ripened, but still complex wine. The grapes are whole cluster pressed and then fermented in barrel without a second malolactic fermentation in attempts to preserve a certain zestiness."
