( WA 96-97) La Carriere is situated at an elevation of
around 1,200-1,700 feet with a rocky, shallow, volcanic soil that gives low
fertility and is among the lowest yields of all the Peter Michael vineyards.
The vineyard is planted to Dijon and Hyde (Old Wente) clone selections. A tank
sample due to be bottled in the next day or so, the 2019 Chardonnay la Carriere
reveals delicate scents of fresh green apples, white peaches and preserved
lemons with hints of chalk dust, orange blossoms and coriander seed. Medium to
full-bodied, the palate delivers a satiny texture with bags of freshness
lifting the mineral-tinged citrus flavors to a long finish.
