Chateau Ste. Michelle Columbia Valley Riesling Wine
Chateau Ste. Michelle Columbia Valley Riesling Wine offers flavors of ripe peach and tropical fruit with a refined elegance. Smaller notes of citrus and other white fruits reveal themselves on the palate with a touch of minerality. It is a rich style of Riesling, characteristic of the Cold Creek Vineyard that reveals a crisp and refreshing finish.
Planted in the early 1970s, Cold Creek Vineyard is one of Washington’s oldest and most acclaimed vineyards. Columbia Valley vineyards lie in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountains. A northerly latitude gives the Columbia Valley roughly two more hours of sunlight daily during the peak-growing season than California, increasing the region’s ability to ripen fruit.
