Viewing this page verifies the origin and authenticity for this bottle of 2011 L’Après-Midi Estate Sauvignon Blanc 1.5 L .
The 2011 L’Après-Midi Sauvignon Blanc (la-prey mi-di) is produced from grapes grown on the cool slopes along side of our Les Pavots Bordeaux red varietals. L’Après-Midi translates from French to “the afternoon.” A wine delicious and easy enough to drink anytime – for example, the afternoon. Sir Peter is fond of pointing out that it is always the afternoon somewhere in the world..
Winemaker Tasting Notes:
The 2011 L’Après-Midi is a superb expression of our estate’s terroir. Intense and multi-layered, the bouquet is dominated by honeysuckle, hawthorn, gooseberry, lime, white flesh peach, William pear and dried apricot, completed by touches of acacia and candied anise, greengage, quince and wet stone. Rich and zesty, the flavors are reminiscent of the aromas and the mouth feel is seamless. The strong mineral background, a stamp of the estate terroir, balances the overall richness, giving a superb refinement. The finish is layered, very long and elegant. Built to age, the wine is already revealing itself.
Blend: 96% Estate Sauvignon Blanc, 4% Estate Sémillon
Aged 8 months in 100% French oak barrels from select artisan coopers
