Chateau Ste. Michelle Harvest Select Sweet Riesling 2014
Riesling from Columbia Valley, Washington
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 flavors of ripe peaches. A bowl of fruit in a glass! 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.
Wine Enthusiast - "The aromas of lime leaf and peach are bright and appealing. It drinks medium sweet with a finish that lingers. Best Buy"

It is perfect way to end an evening. It is sweet and refreshing. The sweetness is balanced, meaning it is not too sweet and pairs with many dishes.49/18/201658/27/2016
Juicy fruit flavors combine with a sweet finish without being too sugary. For those of you who like dessert wines this is an excellent choice. There are wines I've tried that are twice the price and not nearly as good as this Riesling.58/22/2016prfoot - Gilbert, AZ48/19/2016Anonymous - Little Elm, TX37/29/2016Anonymous - Woodlawn, IL57/18/201656/26/201656/22/2016Anonymous - Avon Lake, OH55/30/2016Bookfan - New Castle, CO45/17/2016ece2 - Nashville, TN53/13/2016Anonymous - Crownsville, MD52/29/2016
