Chateau Ste Michelle Columbia Valley Chardonnay
Chateau Ste Michelle are a big yet amazingly consistent winery - in a good way.
The benchmark for a large winery in many ways.
This is their Chardonnay and it's a fairly classic American style one. Nougat, stone fruit and creamy oak on the nose, pineapple, citrus and peach with creamy, nutty oak on the palate. Fresh enough though, but definitely a more textural creamy style, and this type of Chardonnay still has its legions of fans..
