About Peter Michael Winery
Appropriately enough, Sir Peter Michael, an Englishman who made his name in electronics, established his vineyard in Sonoma County's Knights Valley. From the moment he purchased the property in 1982, Sir Michael has insisted upon an Old-World approach to New World wine. Terroir is paramount here, along with elegance in favor of overstatement.

95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2005
(these vines are now about 23 years of age) Full straw-gold color. Sexy, superrich aromas of pineapple, vanilla, baking spices, smoke and coconut. Large-scaled, plump and rich, with a vibrant orange rind note; wonderfully sweet and opulent without coming across as heavy. Impressively layered, deep chardonnay with great purity and palate coverage.
