(From 2011 Vintage) This Pinot Gris style falls between the lighter Italian Pinot Grigio and the richer, rounder Pinot Gris from Alsace. The Chateau Ste. Michelle Pinot Gris offers fresh flavors of juicy pear, melon and a hint of spice. A touch of Viognier contributes texture and an attractive floral character. This wine is a perfect match with scallops or halibut.
Wine & SpiritsRating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 08/09. This white's tropical aromas suggest the heat of the Columbia Valley, while the flavors of white grapes, golden apple and lees take a leaner course. For grilled squid.
