Chateau St. Michelle "Harvest Select"-- Sweet Riesling-- Columbia Valley 2022

Straw hue with aromas of wondrous summer melon, vanilla pudding, tropical fruit salad, and a citrus beam under all.

Palate--vibrant "*spritzig" on the palate, with well made sweet, but not cloying, tropical fruit melange, hints of mango, cantelope, and a finish that says "I want more!"

This is a brilliantly beautiful wine and sells for around $10. It is hard to stop drinking it. I have a ham in the oven right now and this will be my wine. This is great all by itself as an aperitif too. Put a chill on it and have plenty on hand and raise glass after glass!

*Spritzig--a German term for "sparkle" or what we might call a touch of carbonation.
