    Winemaker's Notes:

    This Eroica shows the crisp acidity of the 2007 vintage, which was the best acidity holding year in the past five years. The wine delivers mandarin orange and sweet lime aromas and flavors with subtle mineral notes. The cooler September, along with selecting fruit from higher elevation and cooler sites, contributed to the mouth-watering acidity balanced by beautiful Washington Riesling fruit.

    An amazing pairing with sweet, flavorful Dungeness crab.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Taking its accustomed place at the head of the class as it has in so many past vintages, this latest rendition from Chateau Ste. Michelle and Ernst Loosen is a remarkable wine of impeccable balance and stunning depth. Slightly sweet and buoyed by fine fruity acids, it smells of honeysuckle, white peaches and minerals and follows with long, compact, layered flavors that presently only hint at the richness to come. Top-notch Riesling is capable of great beauty and complexity with age, and, we have no doubt that the greatness lurking here will gradually become more and more evident with time.

    Connoisseurs' Guide

    Eroica, the joint venture between Dr. Loosen and Chateau Ste. Michelle, produced a focused, ethereal and pure 2007. This vintage is a blend of fruit from Evergreen. Viewcrest, Horse Heaven and other vineyards. Its aromas are all about citrus, with hints of lemon and tangerine, while the taut flavors are more pearlike. A fine, mineral finish gives the wine balance and poise.

    Bright and juicy, with bracing acidity against lightly sweet, expressive pear, apricot and quince aromas and flavors, remaining vibrant as the finish persists. A slate character hovers in the background. Drink now through 2017.

    The 2007 Eroica Riesling, made in collaboration with the Dr. Loosen estate in Germany’s Mosel region, is light to medium straw-colored with fragrant aromas of spring flowers, mineral, and honeysuckle. Crisp and just off-dry, in a Kabinett style, it delivers flavors of melon and pineapple. The wine is balanced and vibrant and may well evolve for several years in the manner of a top German Mosel Kabinett. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 5-7 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    This Riesling collaboration between Chateau Ste. Michelle and Ernst Loosen is no longer unique, but the wine has been fine-tuned over the years and sets a consistently high standard. This may be the most acidic ever made, but it is juicy rather than sour, and has a textural creaminess that adds both depth and length. The fruit flavors mix ripe apple and Mandarin orange, with hints of sweet lime and wet stone.

    This is by far and away one of the best Rieslings I have ever had. We served it with crabcakes and it was a perfect compliment to the meal. My only regret is that I did not buy it by the case, as it is sold out.

    This 2007 was our first of the Eroica from Ch.Ste.Mich and it was a step above the regular riesling they have. Less acidity and more flavor. Much easier to drink! Huge value here.

    This is an outstanding riesling - not too sweet, which I prefer. Forget the higher priced ones, this is a gem.

    So far, Eroica is without peers among New World Rieslings. Perfect balance and elegant.

    Great wine. Exceptional. Buy it you will not be disappointed. Seems like everything I get from Ch. Ste. Michelle is great. Buy it, you will like it.

    Eroica is very well done, not too sweet and very, very smooth for a $20 bottle of wine.
