Which wine should you serve with oysters? For the most part, I’ll confess, my immediate answer is: "Yes." Really, when you’re eating oysters, it’s the shellfish that comes first. But the wine matters too. And so Jon Rowley and Taylor Shellfish Farms hold the annual Pacific Coast Oyster Wine Competition to narrow the field. Final judging for the annual competition -- the 19th -- was held last week, with winners announced Monday. The wines were scored by a panel of judges in three cities: Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. You may notice that the winning wines are not the kind that usually dominate wine tastings-- they are not flashy or oaky. Instead, they tend to be crisp, fresh and, with few exceptions, relatively inexpensive. Winners included some familiar names from previous oyster wine competitions, as usual. Seven of the top 10 finishers had won previous competitions, and five of them were multiple winners. The multiple winners include: ...2012 Chateau Ste. Michele’s Sauvignon Blanc from Washington state...
“Bargain 2011 Whites” Bellingham Herald - February 21, 2013
Chateau Ste. Michelle's largest-production Sauvignon Blanc is far from shy with its grassy and zesty approach. The nose hints at light oak - a third of the blend spent five months in older French oak - backed by peach, muskmelon, lime and minerality. There's tasty honeydew melon on the bone-dry entry, followed by baked apple, more lime, slate and cleansing acidity.

Chateau Ste. Michelle’s largest-production Sauvignon Blanc is far from shy with its grassy and zesty approach, a sign of relatively cool vintage for Washington state. The nose hints at light oak — a third of the blend spent five months in older French oak — backed by peach, muskmelon, lime and minerality. There’s tasty honeydew melon on the bone-dry entry, followed by baked apple, more lime, slate and cleansing acidity. Suggested fare includes herb-influenced chicken, linguine with clam sauce, baked halibut or oysters.
