Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling Columbia Valley Dry 2007
Chateau Ste. Michelle is Washington state’s Founding Winery, with some of the oldest and most acclaimed vineyards in the Columbia Valley. Built on the 1912 estate owned by Seattle lumber baron Frederick Stimson, the winery’s roots date back to the Repeal of Prohibition, when the Pommerelle Wine Company and the National Wine Company were formed. The winery combines Old World winemaking tradition with New World innovation and is best known for its award-winning Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a dry, crisp, refreshing style of Riesling with beautiful forward fruit flavours - white peach and mandarin - and a clean finish.
Nose of peaches, baked apple, and a hint of lime. Very tasty, featuring peach juice leading into a lime finish. Dry yet ripe, with some minerality as well. I personally like it better at room temperature than chilled- it tasted more juicy. If it has a flaw, it's only that the finish isn't longer.
For the price it had a lovely fragrance and medium body that lingered for a bit. It was strong and slightly sweet. It went fantastically with my christmas ham.
This is a really nice summer wine, well balanced and not overpowering
A nice refreshing wone for a hot summer night- great with spicy Asian food, very pleasing especially in the price range
