Chateau Ste. Michelle Columbia Valley Chardonnay 2016
Ranked the #8 White, Sparkling & Rosé Wine in our Sept. 23, 2017 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event.
The Columbia Valley Chardonnay is a pleasurable, food-friendly Chardonnay. It is crafted in a fresh, soft style with bright apple and sweet citrus fruit character with subtle spice and oak nuances. We blend Chardonnay grapes from vineyards throughout Washington's Columbia Valley to make this a complex, interesting wine. The sur lie aging gives it an appealing richness. Food Pairing: Crab, poultry, salmon, scallops.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine has a throwback label celebrating Chateau Ste Michelle's 50th anniversary. Upfront aromas of clarified butter, peach and spice are followed by medium-bodied stone fruit flavors. It's a varietal crowd-pleaser.
