Chateau Ste Michelle 2008 Riesling

Medium pale green gold with a distinct Riesling nose: mineral, honey, and stone fruit. Medium body, strong acidity, slightly off-dry. Citrus with a bit of apricot and melon; fine finish. Quite nice. 12.0% $19.90 at Crosstown. See Ste Michelle Winery.

I have to wonder why most British Columbia Rieslings do not achieve this same distinct Riesling notes that echo the Mosel; if I recall correctly the 8th Generation is one of the few I’ve tasted in this vein. The region and climate are essentially the same. Interesting.
