This is the rare Chateau Ste. Michelle wine that is topped with a screwcap. It’s all part of white winemaker – and Oz native – Wendy Stuckey’s effort to create a dry Australian wine from Washington grapes. Most of the grapes came from the cooler Zillah area of the Yakima Valley. The resulting wine comes off bone dry, with residual sugar of an imperceptible 0.65% and a pH of 3.04. It opens with aromas of baked apple, jasmine and slate, followed by flavors of Granny Smith apple, Asian pear, flint and lemon. Salivating acidity makes this the perfect foil with clams, mussels, scallops, halibut or baked chicken.
