Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay 2012
"My goal with the Columbia Valley Chardonnay is to make it a pleasurable, food-friendly wine. This is a fresh, soft style of Chardonnay with bright apple and citrus fruit character with subtle spice and oak nuances. We blend Chardonnay grapes from vineyards all over Washington’s Columbia Valley to make this a complex, interesting wine. The sur lie aging gives it appealing softness." -Winery
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
External Reviews for Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay
Intense aromas and deep flavors of ripe apple intermingle with notes of hazelnut spice, subtle vanilla and butterscotch. The vibrant ripe apple, pear and citrus flavors are seamlessly integrated with a spicy character achieved by barrel fermentation in French oak. The wine's lush texture is complemented by a smooth, silky finish.
Bright and lively, with juicy pear and grapefruit flavors on a sleek frame, finishing with refreshing acidity and a polished texture. Drink now.
This is a crisp, clean and nicely-structured Chardonnay, fermented in a mix of new and neutral oak, along with some stainless steel. A bit beer-like and yeasty at first, it opens into pleasing flavors of grapefruit and pineapple, with just the right amount of acidity.
