Chateau Ste. Michelle Canoe Ridge Estate Vineyard Chardonnay 2008
Pair with salmon, crab cakes, pork.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Polished, fragrant and appealing for its lively pineapple, pear and lemongrass flavors, persisting nicely on the vibrant finish. Drink now.
The 2008 Chardonnay Canoe Ridge Estate was partially fermented with native yeasts in 50% new French oak. It was aged in barrel for 10 months sur lie with stirring and went through full malolactic. Medium gold-colored, it gives up an attractive bouquet of buttered popcorn, minerals, poached pear, lemon zest, and baking spices. Smooth textured, mouth-filling, and impeccably balanced, this Chardonnay over-delivers for its modest price.
Chateau Ste. Michelle receives some of the highest accolades in the industry, including "American Winery of the Year" by Wine Enthusiast for 2004 and "2005 Winery of the Year" by Restaurant Wine. In addition, the winery's Eroica Riesling, crafted from a partnership with German winemaker Ernst Loosen, has been named to Wine Spectator's prestigious "Top 100" wines list for five consecutive years.
Chateau Ste. Michelle is one of the few premium wineries in the world with two state-of-the-art wineries, one devoted to whites and another to reds. This dedicated approach to winemaking allows winemaker Bob Bertheau to build winemaking programs to the unique specifications of red and white wines. While all of Chateau Ste. Michelle's vineyards are located on the east side of the Cascade Mountains where the climate is dry and sunny, Bob Bertheau makes the award winning white wines in Woodinville, 15 miles northeast of Seattle. The winery's expansive, 87-acre estate hosts more than 250,000 visitors annually for tours, tastings, dinners and outdoor summer concerts.
