Chateau Ste. Michelle Sauvignon Blanc Horse Heaven Hills Horse Heaven Vineyard 2009
Jeffery Lindenmuth / March 2011
With 22 percent fermented in older French oak, this wine shows body, structure, and complexity. The remainder, fermented in stainless steel, keeps it bright, juicy, and fruit-driven. Flavors of Granny Smith apple, pear, and citrus are laced with herbs on a palate that dances with acidity.
