Eroica Chateau Ste. Michelle & Dr. Loosen Single Berry Select Riesling 2007
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
Even better (and considerably more expensive) is the 2007 Eroica Single Berry Select, Ste. Michelle's interpretation of a German Trockenbeerenauslese. Made with 100% botrytis-infected fruit, it is deep gold in color with an explosive nose of candied peaches, apricots, ginger, and fruit cake. Incredibly rich and opulent, it is likely to evoke moans of pleasure for another 10-15 years.
Rich and unctuous, thick in texture but polished and refined, this deftly balances its pear, pineapple, tobacco and tea leaf flavors against pinpoint acidity. Shows depth and amazing length. Drink now through 2019. 72 cases made.
