Single Vineyard Estate Chardonnay
Thank you for for your interest in our wine.
Viewing this page verifies the origin and authenticity for this bottle of 2020 La Carrière Estate Chardonnay 750 ml.
The 2020 Peter Michael Winery La Carrière Estate Chardonnay (la kah-ree-air) is produced from the steepest vineyard on our Knights Valley Estate. La Carrière, French for “the quarry,” aptly describes this vineyard’s bowl shape, the tremendously rocky soils and its steep mountain slopes. The vineyard’s rocky soils provide excellent drainage, low fertility and usually the lowest yields on the estate. La Carrière, with its concentrated “liquid minerality,” effectively reflects its mountainous origin.
Winemaker Tasting Notes:
A bouquet of yellow spring flowers and baking spices, leading into notes of orange zest, lime blossoms, apricot, and lemon meringue pie, finishing with accents of vanilla custard. The focused entry is followed by a dense mid-palate with rich, oyster shell structure, a creamy mouth feel, and seamless harmony. Lemon custard, crème brûlée, acacia honey, and white peach flavors accompany the generous grand cru body of this wine..
