Winemaker's Notes: Chateau Ste. Michelle is proud to offer Saint M, a German Riesling made by acclaimed winemaker Ernst Loosen, owner of the Dr. Loosen estate, which has a 200-year tradition of producing Riesling in Germany's Mosel region. With his modern world view and his traditional approach to winemaking, Ernst strives to produce wines that unmistakably express the character of Riesling and of the vineyards where they are grown. Saint M represents a great value in classic Riesling from the Pfalz region. Saint M Riesling is clean and crisp, with a viscous mouth-coating texture balanced by a firm, mineral edge. This Riesling typifies the classic fruity, but stony, character of the Pfalz.
|Wine maker notes
|Saint M Riesling comes entirely from the warm and sunny Pfalz region of Germany,directly North of Alsace, where full ripeness is possible every vintage. Summers in the Pfalz region are long and warm and rainfall is light, contributing to the region’s ripe fruit character. Grapes harvested in the Pfalz produce Rieslings with substance and finesse.
