Chateau Ste. Michelle Columbia Valley Riesling 2018



Columbia Valley Riesling is a blend of Riesling from throughout Washington’s Columbia Valley. The wine offers crisp apple aromas and flavors with subtle mineral notes. This is our “everyday Riesling” that is a pleasure to drink and easy to match with a variety of foods. ~Winemaker Notes

Vintage Notes: 2018 was another stellar growing season and vintage in Washington. Warm spring temperatures were followed by mild conditions throughout the growing season allowing for extended hang time and flavor development. The warm fall days allowed for full ripeness and color, while cool Washington nights helped maintain crisp natural acidity.

Vineyard Notes: Columbia Valley vineyards lie in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountains and receive just 6-8 inches of rainfall annually. Warm, sunny days and cool evening temperatures create ideal conditions for intense aroma and flavor development in the ripening grapes. The northerly latitude gives the Columbia Valley nearly two more hours of sunlight during the peak-growing season than California.

Winemaking Notes: Riesling grapes were harvested in September and October at the peak of flavor ripeness Fermentation temperatures were maintained at 55-60 degrees Fahrenheit to preserve Riesling’s fresh and fruity character. We feature the “Riesling Taste Profile” scale on the back label to demonstrate that this Riesling is made in a “medium-dry” style.
