Viewing this page verifies the origin and authenticity for this bottle of 2019 Ma Belle-Fille Estate Chardonnay 750ml.
The 2019 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:
A bright, light straw color, ‘Ma Belle-Fille’ bursts from the glass with vine blossom, pure liquid minerals, nectarines, white flowers, creamed hazelnut, pastry elements, and Reinette apple. On the palate, noticeable layer upon layer of stone, minerals, grilled bread, and jasmine are accentuated with an oily, full-bodied concentration. The finish is complex and expansive with a purity of lingering lemon curd, vanilla bean, yellow flowers, and nougat with hints of cinnamon and pain d’épices. Perfectly balanced and structured to age gracefully.
Blend: 100% Estate Chardonnay
Aged 12 months in 100% French oak barrels from select artisan coopers
