Cuvée Indigène

Produced since 1988, Cuvée Indigène is a winemaker’s barrel selection focused on the power that Chardonnay can display along with finesse and nuance. Drawn from the best barrels of Old Wente clone, this blend shows intense lemon custard and crème brûlée character. The name translates as “Indigenous Blend” and harkens back to the early days of Peter Michael Winery. Then only a fraction of our production was fermented using the yeast occurring naturally on the grapes, instead of commercially cultured yeast. This time consuming traditional method is now employed for all of our wines.
