Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay Cold Creek Vineyard 2015
2015 made the record books as the hottest vintage with the earliest bud break. Careful vineyard management resulted in the truest expression of Cold Creek Chardonnay - naturally crisp, with decadent rich, ripe fruit. Intense with subtle minerality.
Despite coming from the warmest vintage on record for the state, this wine displays a very pleasing sense of restraint. Aromas of straw, clarified butter and peach are followed by well-balanced, textured fruit flavors. An elegant styling only heightens the appeal.
Pair with seafood risotto, salmon and veal.
