Thank you for for your interest in our wine.
Viewing this page verifies the origin and authenticity for this bottle of 2015 L’Après-Midi Estate Sauvignon Blanc 1.5L.
The 2015 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:
Intense and multi-layered, the bouquet is dominated by passion fruit, mangosteen, guava, yellow nettle blossom, honeysuckle, lemon, lime, white peach and white currant with touches of dry honey and candied anise. Rich and zesty, the flavors are reminiscent of the aromas with additional fresh almond and nougat notes. The strong mineral background, a stamp of our Knight Valley Estate, balances the overall richness, giving a superb refinement. The finish is layered, very long and elegant.
Blend: 88% Estate Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Estate Sémillon
Aged 8 months in 100% French oak barrels from select artisan coopers
