Founded in 1934, Chateau Ste. Michelle is the oldest winery in Washington with some of the most mature vineyards in the Columbia Valley. Light bright yellow with bouquet of tropical and citrus fruits. On the palate pineapple, grapefruit, melon and lemon citrus, crisp. Lively acidity ending with earthy mineral and herb grassy tones. Better that ‘15.

Simple wine that aromatically pleasing with gooseberries, straw, musky, and pine. Depending on the temperature you get a vodka like hit. Little sugar on the tongue, while the mouthfeel crisp and clean.

I'm not a big Sauvignon Blanc fan but I thought this one was pretty good. The nose is understated and floral, but the wine is sharply citric on the tongue. Served cold and with light food it was very nice. Finishes pretty dry. Has a hint of effervescence which makes it more interesting. Overall a better-than-decent wine.

Great melon taste, lemon aroma. Wonderful glass on a hot Summer day! Chilling not needed & it lasts unrefrigerated quite long. I find it better than Nobilo!

Juicy mandarin oranges bursting with pink grapefruit, drangon fruit, lychee and white pears. Also getting those excellent wheat grass and wet stone characteristics that are true to Sauvignon Blanc. Off-dry / semi-sweet with good acidity. I love me some Sauv Blanc!
