Viewing this page verifies the origin and authenticity for this bottle of 2018 Ma Belle-Fille Estate Chardonnay 750ml.
The 2018 Peter Michael Winery Ma Belle-Fille Estate Chardonnay (ma bel fee), French for “my daughter-in-law”, was named in tribute to Emily Michael, daughter-in-law of Sir Peter and Lady Michael. At the highest elevation on the estate, the vineyard sits far above the summer fog ceiling and receives the very first rays of sunshine each morning and remains sunny all day long. This full exposure combined with the cooler temperatures of the marine fog layer, causes the fruit to mature earlier than the rest of our estate.
Winemaker Tasting Notes:
The 2018 Ma Belle-Fille expresses nuances and complexity of dough, jasmine, pineapple, fresh pear, pastry elements, golden apple and nectarine accentuated by elegant minerality. Generous on the palate, rich with a creamy texture and multilayered, the wine displays brioche, orange blossom, dry honey, almond, nougat, vanilla, and clove. The finish is slightly oily, classic and very long.
Blend: 100% Estate Chardonnay
Aged 12 months in 100% French oak barrels from select artisan coopers
