Happy Hour: Chateau Ste. Michelle Eroica Riesling 2006


When shopping for white wine, I usually steer clear of overly sweet Rieslings. However, one Riesling I can't get enough of is Eroica. It's a rich, fruity wine from Washington state that is developed with a complex mix of old-world meets new-world techniques. The grapes come from many different vineyards to make the perfect blend. It's bold but refined with citrus flavors and a slight mineral finish. I love that the wine is named for Beethoven's third symphony, an interesting tidbit that elevates this bottle to supreme sophistication. It would pair well with light appetizers at Thanksgiving dinner; a crisp, thin crusted pizza; or a delicious, raw seafood bar.

I do not like sweet wines. Pinot Grigio is the only white wine I will drink. But maybe I'll pick some up for guests on TG.

I love sweet Rieslings. I don't care for them if they're tooo sweet. Then they're just a whole new thing. Anyways, I'll go out and by a bottle tonight and check it out. :cocktail: Not like i have enough wine at home. So many reds! Time for a white.

Riesling is probably one of the only wines I'll drink. Thanks for the suggesting parings. I never know what wine goes with what.

WOOT! Gotta love my Washington Wines. I actually prefer the Columbia Winery Riesling most times, but this one is pretty kick butt too!
