Wine Review: This wine recently finished a very respectable 4th in our blind tastings of Rieslings. This light yellow wine has a nice light lemon and peach like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, vibrant, complex, and has a lot going on. The flavor profile was that of caramel and apples. This wine will match well with scallops with a roasted red pepper puree. The finish is dry, persistent, and quite prolonged. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: "This is the debut of our Indian Wells Riesling. At Chateau Ste. Michelle we are passionate about Riesling and are pleased to add this tropical style of Riesling to our diverse Riesling line up. The 2005 Indian Wells Riesling exhibits fruit-driven aromas of ripe, juicy pineapple, peach and mango and is rich and unctuous, while maintaining a crisp, well-balanced style that is typical of Washington state Riesling."
