2006 Chateau Ste. Michelle Sauvignon Blanc Columbia Valley

Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) The nose hints at light oak — a third of the blend spent five months in older French oak — backed by peach, muskmelon, lime and minerality. There’s tasty honeydew melon on the bone-dry entry, followed by baked apple, more lime, slate and cleansing acidity.

Winemaker's Notes

(From «nv» Vintage) The cooler vintage led to a more herbal style of Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of grass, fresh herbs and grapefruit with a clean, fresh finish. The mostly stainless steel fermentation makes this a crisp wine that would pair well with dishes with cream sauce.

Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    It is not one of the richer Sauvignons to be found, and it is far from being among the more complex, but this bright and very well-balanced bottling succeeds nicely in a racy, lighter-weight style. Its lively, green-melon fruit comes with shadings of grass and stones, and its modest price makes it a bonafide bargain. GOOD VALUE
