Chateau Ste Michelle Eroica Riesling 2011

Chateau Ste Michelle Eroica Riesling 2011

The best thing about great Riesling is that they are all so unique and original. That’s probably why critics still grant the awards to the most prominent white wines. The Chateau Ste Michelle Eroica Riesling 2011 is one of such wines. It is very similar to other great Rieslings but this beauty has its own distinctive features. Therefore, once you have tried it at least for one time, you will never take it for anything else. It has the same old notes of citrus, lime and grapefruit. But aside from that, it also has a flavor of a mouth-watering white peach. Its gentle mineral notes and its perfect acidity are blended ideally with the fragrant Riesling grape from Washington.

Riesling in the Eroica style

The true nature of this amazing Riesling is in its name. This wine is a bold combination of the most original undertones. And even though it can be easily called one of the most delicious Rieslings in the world, it has nothing to do with the traditional Riesling wines. It is much more nuanced, subtle and elegant than your traditional dry whites. Chateau Ste. Michelle Eroica Riesling 2011 has very soft, almost silky aroma, but it is still incredibly refreshing and delightful. Its minerality and its acidity are very distinctive. But its rich taste is simply unforgettable.

Compelling white wine

This is a very enjoyable and compelling Riesling. It has the most untraditional blend of fruits and the flavor of these fruits is simply amazing. This wine has a texture and character. It is perfect for cellaring because it is still young. But in case you want to try it right now, you will be greatly surprised by its subtleness and smoothness. All in all, this is a very cool vintage. It is not the cheapest wine in the market but its cost is justified by its amazing quality. The price should not exceed $20 or so, and that is a very good price for such exceptional white wine. 

Intense and refreshing Riesling

This Chateau Ste. Michelle Eroica Riesling 2011 is very fresh and fragrant. Its aroma is very bright and rich, and its taste is beautifully intense.  The undertones of honeysuckle and peach make this very dry white wine even more delicious. Just imagine a perfect dry white of such complexity and with no unwanted sweetness at all. This Riesling is a perfect example of such wines. It is so ideally balanced that you cannot help enjoying this wine.
