The 2014 Chateau Ste Michelle Riesling begins with a very nice, inviting aroma full of honeyed fruit (primarily lime and peach) and lots of floral notes. It is definitely on the sweet side but it is not at all cloying. Good acidity also helps to offset some of the sweetness. Sweet and rich flavors of lime, peach and granny smith apple are wrapped up in a pleasant, lively mouthfeel. To put simply, it's just a delight to drink. On the crisp, long finish the fruit turns a bit tart and there's even a hint of minerality.
