Chateau Ste. Michelle 2014 Chardonnay, Columbia Valley

Item Number: 51 20 115 14

Customer Rating Based on a scale of 1 to 5 glasses

A Wine Enthusiast Magazine perpetual Best Buy and a "Best Value" in the Wine Spectator, this Washington state Chardonnay is hard to beat. 65% barrel fermented and the rest fermented in tank to maintain the bright fruit flavors. Malolactic fermentation follows yeast fermentation for added richness and complexity and the wine is aged sur lie for more than six months in a mix of French and American oak barrels (35% new) with regular stirrings to add richness and integrate the fruit and oak flavors. The 2013 scored 91 points in Wine Enthusiast Magazine. This 2014 hasn't been rated yet but it's clearly another Best Buy winner with notes of butterscotch, pear and pineapple with toasty barrel accents and a creamy mouthfeel.
