Thank you for for your interest in our wine.
Viewing this page verifies the origin and authenticity for this bottle of 2012 Ma Belle-Fille Estate Chardonnay 750ml.
The 2012 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:
Spectacular intensity, packed with aromas of peach, tangerine blossom, dried apricot, and, golden apple and nectarine, accented with wet stone-like minerality, brioche and peony flower notes. Rich and concentrated, the wine displays deep flavors of William pear, honey, dried almond, meringue, dry chamomile, orange rind and notes of baked Reinette apple. Layered and seductive, the finish is very long.
Blend: 100% Estate Chardonnay
