Pretty good. I had low expectations but was very surprised. Would have liked a little more acid but it still wasn't too sweet for me. Read more

This 2011 is an improvement over the 2010. For years, Ste Michelle's Rieslings were just a shadow of their single vineyard wines. With this wine, there seems to be a change. The fruit is much more intense than what I was expecting. It also has a longer finish and a nicer flavor profile. Sweetness is similar to a Rhine district Spatlese or Mosel Auslese.

Winemaker's Notes:

• Riesling grapes were harvested in October at the peak of fl avor. • Fermentation temperatures were maintained at 50-55 degrees F to preserve Riesling’s fresh and fruity character, using an assortment of yeasts for added complexity. • We feature the “Riesling Taste Profi le” scale on the back label to help people understand that this Riesling is made in a “medium-sweet” style.

Tasting Notes:

Our Harvest Select Riesling is made in a slightly sweeter style than our “Columbia Valley Riesling” but still shows the elements of classic Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling. It offers beautiful crisp Washington Riesling character with rich fl avors of ripe pears and peaches. The fresh fruit punch and richness is balanced with crisp acidity to keep the wine in harmony. This is a perfect patio sipping wine or would be a great match with Thai food.
