Peter Michael La Carriere Chardonnay 2020
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Knights Valley|
The 2020 'La Carrière' leaps from the glass with a bouquet of yellow spring flowers and baking spices, leading into notes of orange zest, lime blossoms, apricot, and lemon meringue pie, finishing with accents of vanilla custard. A focused entry is followed by a dense mid-palate with rich, oyster shell structure, a creamy mouthfeel, and seamless harmony. Lemon custard, crème brûlée, acacia honey, and white peach flavors accompany the generous grand cru body of this wine.
Aromatic and vibrant, revealing orange blossom and wildflower honey notes up front, with a terrifically concentrated core of lemon curd, peach and mango. Fresh and juicy, with hints of vanilla custard and a touch of sea salt toffee lingering on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2030. 2,150 cases made.
