2002 Chateau Ste. Michelle Pinot Gris
Mild winter and spring weather continued into a long, warm, dry and stable growing season in 2001. September harvest conditions were ideal with very warm, clear days and cool nights. "Fresh pear, honeydew melon and mandarin orange aromas and flavors combine with chamomile tea, honeysuckle and assorted floral characteristics..." according to winemaker, Erik Olsen. This wine pairs well with shellfish, cream-based dishes, cheese & fruit.
