Chateau Ste. Michelle Col Val Gewürztraminer 750ML
Chateau Ste. Michelle a fan favorite, this Gewürztraminer pops out of the glass with exuberant fruit and clove spice. The bottling is lush with a lot of character, yet still maintains the grape's natural crisp character. This is an easy wine to enjoy.
Light and refreshing, this off-dry white has pretty apple and grapefruit flavors shaded with floral and exotic spice notes, lingering refreshingly. Drink now.
Score: 88. —Harvey Steiman, November 30, 2009.
This is an easy-drinking style of Gewürztraminer, without any of the floral or soapy scents, or the oily mouthfeel, that characterize more concentrated and richer bottlings. Here instead is a rather simple, roundly fruity white wine, masking its residual sugar in ample natural acids.
