Chateau Ste. Michelle Sauvignon Blanc Horse Heaven Vineyard

Wine Description

(1999 Vintage) Toasty oak and vanilla are framed by aromas of tropical fruit and refreshing citrus. Loads of fruit emerge on the palate: honeydew, ripe apricot and grapefruit. A very expressive wine, with bright acidity balanced by abundant fruit.

    (2006 Vintage) This Sauvignon Blanc from our Horse Heaven Vineyard delivers aromas of ripe pear and notes of citrus fruit. The wine was fermented in a combination of oak and stainless steel tanks. The stainless steel fermentation preserved the Sauvignon Blanc’s vibrant character and refreshing, crisp quality.
