Thank you for for your interest in our wine.
Viewing this page verifies the origin and authenticity for this bottle of 2014 Ma Belle-Fille Estate Chardonnay 750ml.
The 2014 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 and intense, boasting aromas of ripe peach, tangerine blossom, brioche-like pastry elements, golden apple and nectarine, accented with oyster shell minerality. Rich and concentrated in the mouth, the wine displays flavors of William pear, honey, dried almond, dry chamomile, orange rind and notes of gingerbread and a touch of exotic pineapple. Layered and seductive, the finish is very long.
Blend: 100% Estate Chardonnay
Aged 12 months in 100% French oak barrels from select artisan coopers
