Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling Columbia Valley Dry 2008
Wine Tasting Notes Bright straw yellow in color, the Central Coast Chardonnay exhibits aromas of apple, pear, melon, lemon and honey with slight caramel undertones from the oak aging. On the palate, moderate acidity balances creamy notes of ripe pears, melons and honey, with a bright and lingering finish of citrus and minerals.
Editorial Reviews for Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling Columbia Valley Dry
This is intensely floral, full of honeysuckle and acacia tones and absolutely redolent of sweet limes, with a very soft almost minty/oregano note floating in the background. Fairly dry, but retaining enough sugar to add some fleshy on the palate, this has razor sharp acids that lurk just under the rich, ripe citrus fruits. It lacks a touch of complexity on the mid-palate but finishes with excellent length with sweeping acids and grace notes of orange and mineral. Riesling is always an easy recommendation for spicy dishes and this seems ideal for Thai and Vietnamese dishes 89pts
I really like this wine - its very well priced and tastes good. This vintage is a bit sweeter than I expected (maybe my palate is changing). Still good and paired well with slightly spicy chinese food, but sweeter than previous vintages.
This is a refreshingly crisp, off-dry everyday Washington State Riesling. The winemaker says it has "bright passion fruit and sweet lime character with subtle mineral notes, it is a pleasure to drink and easy to match with a variety of foods.”
