Peter Michael, L'Apres Midi, Sauvignon Blanc, Knights Valley, 2018, Magnum

Sale price£188.00


Given the name 'The Afternoon' it should be no surprise that this is a wine for any time of day, beautifully approachable on it's own yet complex enough to stand up to the richest of dishes. After hand-picking and careful sorting the wine was fermented in barrel and then aged on lees for eight months, giving a wine full of texture, yet with the fruity, zesty character that makes it unmistakeably Sauvignon Blanc. The strong mineral background, a stamp of the Knights Valley Estate, balances the overall richness, giving a superb refinement. The finish is layered, very long and elegant.

93+, Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Advocate)

"The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc l'Apres Midi is composed of 90% Sauvignon Blanc (one-third is Musque Clone) and 10% Semillon. It springs from the glass with lovely peach juice, lime cordial, gooseberries and fresh grapefruit notes with hints of honeycomb, bouquet garni, musk perfume and baker’s yeast. Medium-bodied, the palate has great intensity with a pleasant oiliness to the texture and a zippy line of freshness, finishing long and zesty. 2,939 cases were made." 2020-2025
