Estate Sauvignon Blanc
Thank you for for your interest in our wine.
Viewing this page verifies the origin and authenticity for this bottle of 2017 L’Après-Midi Estate Sauvignon Blanc 1.5L.
The 2017 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 2017 L’Après-Midi is a superb expression of our estate terroir. Intense and exotic on the nose, the bouquet exhibits spring flowers, honeysuckle, iris, pink roses, citrus, and
passion fruit completed by acacia honey. The mouth feel is balanced, rich and elegant with zesty flavors reminiscent of the aromas with addition of bergamot, greengage, pastry
elements, and subtle notes of toasted almonds. Present now, the signature minerality will become more pronounced with age. The finish is layered, gourmand, and extremely long and
elegant. Although the wine is already accessible, it will age gracefully for a decade.
Blend: 86% Estate Sauvignon Blanc, 14% Estate Sémillon
Aged 9 months in 100% French oak barrels from select artisan coopers
