Clean and well crafted, if a bit too sweet for me. Just fine for a warm-weather, open air get together in the park.

Soft apple notes, but the oak doesn't taste like it's well integrated. The finish is like I licked an oak plank.

Fantastically drinkable. Nothing necessarily distinctive, but great overall.

Very good wine. Mellow, light but you can taste the fruity flavors. We had it with a salad and artichokes for dinner.
If you want a good Chardy at a good price, you won't go wrong with this choice.

Founded in 1934, Chateau Ste. Michelle is the oldest winery in Washington with some of the most mature vineyards in the Columbia Valley. Was able to get another taste. Aromas of stone fruits, oak and spices. On the palate Apple and pear flavors with sweet toasty notes. Not overly complex this wine carries the fruit flavors to the finish with bright acidity on a medium ending.

Straw color. Granny Smith apple tropical and pear aromas. No butter di-acetyl notes. Apple and pineapple with toasted oak flavor.
