Chateau Ste. Michelle Columbia Valley 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.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Citrus with melon notes. Simple wine with light oak on the finish.

From the producer of #68 On the Wine Spectator Top 100 2013! A Wine Enthusiast Magazine perpetual Best Buy, this Washington state Chardonnay is hard to beat. Bright, lively flavors of pear and citrus with a delicate touch of toasty oak. Wine Spectator called this 2012 "Bright and lively, with juicy pear and grapefruit flavors on a sleek frame, finishing with refreshing acidity and a polished texture. Drink now."
