Chateau Ste. Michelle 2005 Cold Creek Vineyard Chardonnay (Columbia Valley (WA))

The hot climate of the Cold Creek Vineyard sharpens up the contours of this Chardonnay, which shows more of a classic Washington character. Bright fruit, a mix of apples and peaches and pears, is shot through with streaks of butterscotch from fermentation in new French oak. It's been through 100% malolactic, yet retains some crispness. Polished and full-bodied. Paul Gregutt
