Winemaker's Notes

Number 80 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

"...Ripe and juicy, it's a more tropical style than the others from Ste. Michelle, but still maintains the acid backbone to qualify as racy..."
-Wine Enthusiast

This is the debut of our Indian Wells Riesling. At Chateau Ste. Michelle we are passionate about Riesling and are pleased to add this tropical style of Riesling to our diverse Riesling line up. The 2005 Indian Wells Riesling exhibits fruit-driven aromas of ripe, juicy pineapple, peach and mango and is rich and unctuous, while maintaining a crisp, well-balanced style that is typical of Washington state Riesling.

Crisp and clean, this riesling refreshes and delights with an ethereally light sweetness. Excellent with salads and the lighter fare of spring and summer.
