Peter Michael Winery, 2016 Peter Michael Sauvignon Blanc 'L'Après-Midi'

"This has a beautiful creamy character with peach blossoms and quince with lemon undertones. Full-bodied, layered and fresh. Hints of lemon zest, straw and ash. Wonderful finish of mineral. A fantastic white. Semillon and sauvignon blend. Barrel-fermented but only 10% new. No malo. Drink or hold."

Peter Michael Winery, 2016 Peter Michael Sauvignon Blanc 'L'Après-Midi'

"Blended of 86% Sauvignon Blanc and 14% Sémillon, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc l'Apres Midi is scented of crushed stones, white pepper, struck flint and dried herbs over a core of lemons and grapefruit juice with a touch of chalk dust. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with zesty citrus flavors complemented by minerally notes, finishing long. 2,450 cases were made."
