2009 Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling

This was a wine we picked up to try, I wasn’t to much for Rieslings because there usually really sweet, but this one was good. Not to good, but good. lol. This was the first wine I’ve drank from Oregon. I’ll be adding a “Types of Grapes” section soon!

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 flavors of ripe pears and peaches. The fresh fruit and decadent character 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.
