Winemaker's Notes:

Born from a partnership between Chateau Ste. Michelle and Mosel winemaker Ernst Loosen, Single Berry Select is crafted in the traditional German Trockenbeerenauslese style. This special wine is an ultra rich, concentrated yet elegant wine with intense aromas of dried apricot, honey and sweet spice. Appealing flavors of ripe pineapple, white peach and honey are complemented by a long smooth finish tinged with clove. 145 cases produced.

About Eroica:

Launched in 1999, Eroica is a labor of love for two of the world's great Riesling producers. One from the Old World, Dr. Loosen estate of Germany, and the other from the New World, Chateau Ste. Michelle of Washington state. An intermingling of Old and New World philosophies and technique enables the crafting of an extraordinary Riesling from Washington state grapes. Named for Beethoven's Third Symphony, Eroica reflects not only its variety and site, but also its heritage: bold and forward from its Washington roots, elegant and refined from German inspiration.

The first five vintages of Eroica Riesling (1999-2003) were named to Wine Spectator's "Top 100" list.

"I have long believed that a Riesling revival would have to start with a prominent New World winery like Chateau Ste. Michelle."
- Ernst Loosen, Dr. Loosen estate
