CHÂTEAU STE. MICHELLE Riesling 'Eroica' 2013

This is project first started in 1999 between Dr. Ernst Loosen and Chateau St. Michelle. Loosen and St. Michelle head winemaker Bob Bertheau utilized dozens of small lots, each reflecting a slight difference in character in the final blend of this warm vintage wine. 1.5% Residual sugar on this one, a Kabinett style Riesling. Lemon zest and golden delicious on the nose. Palate has great minerality. Lemon-lime flavors with red delicious, cantaloupe and slate. Outstanding effort, the best Eroica I've had in 10 years. (Best 2015-2022) - December, 2015 (OB)
