Peter Michael La Carriere Chardonnay 2021
|California, Sonoma County, Knights Valley
The 2021 'La Carrière' shimmers a lovely, soft yellow in the glass with an inviting blend of pear, brioche and jasmine leading to notes of yellow spring flowers and honeysuckle with a hint of vanilla custard. The creamy mouthfeel is supported by lively acidity and a dense mid-palate with ample gras. Lemon curd, pastry and vanilla bean follow through to a focused, lengthy finish. The 2021 'La Carrière' can be enjoyed early but will continue to expand for more than a decade.
