It’s a 21st century Riesling!! Riesling for the masses!! The great Riesling comeback of 2019!! We at Grape to Grain are firm lovers of this grape but it’s picked up a bad name over the years. However, Chateau Ste Michelle have created a wine that is about to change things for the better!! This cool climate Riesling is crisp and dry with a mouth-watering acidity with citrus and apricot notes and an elegant finish. The winemaker says this wine is a perfect accompaniment for oysters and who are we to disagree?!
Sounds like: Other Side Of The Game // Erykah Badu

The Nerdy Bits...
The winemaker hand selected particular lots of grapes to create this elegant, dry style of Riesling, while maintaining its beautiful fruit character. The wine underwent a cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve the freshness and bright fruit qualities of the grapes.
