The 2011 Eroica Riesling exhibits aromas and flavors of white peach, grapefruit and sweet lime with subtle mineral notes. The mouth-watering acidity is beautifully balanced by flavorful Washington Riesling fruit. After more than a decade, the winery has truly found the "Eroica style," striving for beautiful bright fruit with crisp acidity and enhanced mineralilty.
"Complex and compelling, this has a luscious mix of fruits that run the Riesling gamut. It's creamy and textural, fresh and primary, with exceptional aging potential and fine, juicy, natural acidity. Cellar Selection"
"Eroica in a cool vintage is driven by energy and freshness more than fruit, the acidity providing a cool, angular intensity. In this 2011, scents of peach and honeysuckle give way to stone fruit flavors that feel clean and pure, buoyed by a minerality that keeps the wine en pointe. A tremendous success in a vintage that required care and a sophisticated approach to viticulture."

"For thoughts on Chateau Ste Michelle's uniqueness and recent evolution, consult my extensive April, 2013 text designed to introduce recent tasting notes. The Ste Michelle-Loosen 2011 Riesling Eroica is scented with lime, apple blossom, clover, honeydew and mint, and gushes with juicy honeydew and apple fruit, its vivacity and (at 11% alcohol) levity reflecting the long, cool growing season including a summer without the usual hundred-degree heat spikes. But for all of that vivacity and lift, this Riesling is also downright lush, making for a refreshingly sorbet-like, metaphorically cooling impression. Its sweetness – at 22 grams – is perfectly judged to support the fruit but not be obvious or get in the way of the wine’s versatility. While not hugely complex, it's irresistible and impressively persistent, with hints of salt and stone suggesting the basis for future call-and-response."

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.

The Riesling grape is happiest in a cooler climate, one that fosters its slow
and steady ripening. Often assumed to be the producer of only sweet wines, Riesling
is a fascinating grape of many faces. From bone dry to lusciously sweet, this
variety is delicious at any sugar level with its intense aromas and steely acidity.
