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.
93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2013
Bright, green-tinged yellow. A wild, intense bouquet displays scents of candied lemon, pear, jasmine and iodine, with a strong saline component and a hint of anise. Smoky, penetrating and deeply concentrated orchard and citrus fruit flavors show impressive energy and pick up a smoky quality with air. Rich but animated chardonnay that finishes with outstanding clarity and persistence.
