Food Pairings for Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay Columbia Valley Cold Creek Vineyard
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.
