Founded in 1934, Chateau Ste. Michelle is the oldest winery in Washington. Classic sweet Riesling, aromas of ripe stone fruits and sweet spice. On the palate ripe peach and apricot flavors, good balance with acidity. Medium+ finish ending with fruit character. Nice value. ‘16 a bit better. Tasting Sample.

Pale lemon in color with a light golden hue.

Sweet nose of citrus, diesel, minerals, yellow apples, tropical fruits, pears, pineapple, spices and white pepper.

Full bodied and creamy with high acidity and nice legs.

Sweet on the palate with lemons, citrus, apples, ripe pears, herbs, sea salt, white pepper and tropical fruits.

Long finish with tangy limes.

This sweet Riesling from Washington State is still fresh tasting. Not fully balanced, but has a lot of acidity for the sugars. Good by itself as a dessert.

10.5% alcohol by volume.

86 points.

$9.

I always love a sweet Riesling. This one is cheap, but still very good. Not cloyingly sweet, and has a nice acidic punch. Tart green apples, honey, and pear. Great for dessert.

Definite value for the price, a crisp bite with a sweet fruity flavor. Finishes clean and light.

Sweet but not too sweet. Dangerously drinkable. Great with smoked mussels. Our first wine in the yard. 7.47 at Total Wines.

I like this Riesling. It has a bright acidity and the shot of CO2 really helps. Very good with fried chicken.

Sweet, apple-y, goes down too easy. Low acid
