Bright aromas of orange zest and apples are complimented by a hint of minerality. Rich, lingering flavors of pear and mandarin orange are accentuated by crisp acidity, leading to a lively, vibrant finish.

Reviews:

"Lightly sweet, with a resiny edge to the pear and green apple flavors lingering on the lively finish. Drink now. 40,000 cases made. –HS" -Rated 86, Wine Spectator

"With this new 2007 release the Grand Estates bottling assumes its rightful place as the go-to bottle in the broad lineup of Rieslings from Ste. Michelle Wine Estates. Though the alcohol is a level-headed 12%, the wine is just slightly beyond dry. Perfectly ripe fruit flavors mix grapes, apples and oranges in equal proportion; the balance is just about perfect. — P.G. (5/1/2009) " -Rated 88, Wine Enthusiast

"Enticing themes of juicy peaches and honey-suckle literally leap from the glass here, and the generous fruit-filled flavors that follow this wine's wholly seductive aromas do not disappoint. Medium-sweet and somewhat unctuous, but so keenly balanced as to be both quite spry and nicely refreshing, this very pleasant wine will make first-rate drinking with sweet-and-spicy Thai and Southeast Asian dishes." -Rated 90, Connoisseur's Guide to California Wines
