Top 10 wines in the US press

Chateau Ste. Michelle, Columbia Valley, Dry Riesling 2011

Chateau Ste. Michelle, Columbia Valley, Dry Riesling 2011In the Dallas Morning News, Rebecca Murphy wrote: “Washington State has a great reputation for world-class reds, especially its merlots. But Riesling? Yes, Riesling.”

She added: “From the state’s largest winery, this one is an affordable wine of extraordinary quality. Aromas and flavours of apple, lemon and white peach mingle with chalky mineral notes animated by vibrant acidity. Light of body and full of freshness, it will enliven a shrimp cocktail or a fresh goat cheese.

“The folks at Chateau Ste. Michelle have been Washington Riesling leaders, having planted their first vines 40 years ago. In the late 1990s, to develop a greater understanding of the grape, they looked to Germany, considered to be the home of Riesling, to collaborate with German vintner Ernie Loosen. They make several styles to showcase the variety’s versatility, and this dry Riesling for less than $9 shows just how accomplished they are.”
