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.”

For 15 years we made a Dry Riesling just for the Northwest. We startedhearing from customers in other parts of the country who wanted this drierstyle of Riesling. Since the 2006 vintage we have been able to make ourDry Riesling available nationally. The Chateau Ste. Michelle Dry Rieslingis a dry, crisp, refreshing style of Riesling with beautiful fruit-forwardfl avors, crisp acidity and an elegant fi nish. It offers brisk, cooler climateRiesling character of white peach and apricot with a clean fi nish. This isan incredibly versatile food wine and my favorite with oysters.'

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
