Ste Chapelle Special Snake River Rieslin 2007

Member Review by chirpy:

This review is for the Dry Riesling -- I had no idea that Idaho produced great wines. This is one of my favorite Dry Rieslings for the price. My local wine shop sells it for $8.99, which makes it a great deal. It easily tastes like a $15 Dry German Riesling. I usually drink it with Thai food or even spicy hummus & pitas.

In 1971 the first experimental vinifera vineyards were planted in Idaho by Symms Fruit Ranch, a family-owned fruit producer mainly growing apples and peaches. It is a viticulture rule of thumb that any area that can grow peaches can also grow premium vinifera wine grapes. Today, Ste. Chapelle produces award-winning Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Riesling, and Syrah from the finest Idaho vineyards. Riesling was the first wine produced by Ste. Chapelle from Idaho grapes, soon followed by Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, and Gewürztraminer. Riesling was Ste. Chapelle's first success due to the great, cool growing conditions for the grape. Ste. Chapelle found continued success with their first vintage of Chardonnay, soon followed by 25 acres of Sauvignon Blanc planted in 1986. Ste. Chapelle constantly continues to explore and expand Idaho's wine-growing horizons. Read less

A sweet riesling, on a clean palate flavors of bright fruit and honey. A lot of nuance is lost when paired with other sweet foods, but goes well with seafood and white pasta.
