Food Pairings for Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay Columbia Valley Cold Creek Vineyard
buttery burnt popcorn aromas with more apples, pears, and melon on the palate. Def get that oak on the nose but great citrus and acid on the palate with some nuttiness in between
More than half of the blend underwent natural fermentation for more interesting nuances and complexity. ■ Fermented in 100% new French oak barrels. ■ 100% sur lie aged for ten months to integrate the fruit and oak ﬂ avors and provide a rich mouthfeel. ■ 100% malolatic fermented for softness, balance and depth.
Cold Creek Chardonnay is typiﬁ ed by concentration and intensity from the 40-year-old vines and warmth of the site. This Chardonnay is a decadent style with ripe fruit and a toasty character. The cooler 2010 vintage in Washington provided enhanced acidity with a restrained ﬁ nish. The combination of a powerful vineyard in a cooler vintage makes for a very balanced and ageable style of Chardonnay.
