Winemaker Notes

Intense and expressive, with a nose of brioche, mineral, peach blossom, candied orange, lemon oil, yellow peach and dry apricot. Notes of vanilla, toasted hazelnut, meringue and subtle white truffle interact to complete a multi-layered and very intense bouquet. In the mouth, the texture is ample and creamy, displaying a lot of "gras" and balanced with a lingering mineral finish. The 2008 Cuvee Indigene will age and express its potential for two decades, much like its Burgundian cousins from Corton-Charlemagne.

Critical Acclaim

RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
When tasted last year, the 2008 Chardonnay Cuvee Indigene came across as somewhat monolithic, but it blossomed beautifully in the barrel and now from the bottle, it appears to be a striking example of Chardonnay from Peter Michael. Buttery, honeyed tropical fruit, spring flower, white peach and citrus aromas jump from the glass of this aromatic 2008. On the palate, it is deep, rich, concentrated and almost as big, full-bodied and layered as Peter Michael’s flagship, limited production Chardonnay called Point Rouge. The stunning Cuvee Indigene has come on like gangbusters over the last year.

Wine Spectator
Rich, exotic aromas of tropical fruit, fig, melon, spice and honeysuckle lead to a full body in this expansive wine. This gains mineral and subtle hazelnut notes on a long, lingering finish.

Peter Michael, Knights Valley, Sonoma County, California
2008 Cuvee Indigene Chardonnay
In 1982 Sir Peter and Lady Margaret Michael built the Peter Michael Winery on a square mile of rocky volcanic ridges that form the western face of Mount St. Helena in Knights Valley, Sonoma County, California. The estate vineyards rest on steep hillsides ranging in elevation from 1100 to nearly 2000 feet. Of the nearly 600 estate acres, only about 20% are planted to grapes. Peter Michael Winery is best known for single-vineyard and estate grown Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and a Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Peter Michael Winery remains true to its commitment to growing classic grape varieties in small mountain vineyards in order to produce great wines using classical winemaking techniques. Given this covenant to the product, only a limited quantity will ever be available.
