Category White Wine
Region United States, Washington, Columbia Valley
Brand Chateau Ste. Michelle
Alcohol/vol 13.9%
The warmth of the Wahluke Slope produces Chardonnay with an appealing tropical fruit character and rich texture. The Indian Wells Chardonnay delivers ripe tropical pineapple flavors and showcases the luscious opulence of Washington fruit. I like this wine with scallops, scampi or pasta with slightly richer sauces.

Smooth and fragrant, with tobacco and peach pit overtones to the apple and stone fruit flavors, finishing with polish. Drink now.

Though it's had some extra time in the bottle, the oaky edges of this wine still seem a little rough and tumble. Or maybe it's the banana cream pie flavors-appealing in their way, but opposite end of the spectrum from, say, the minerality of a Chablis. Front loaded, creamy and rich, this has generous amounts of the oak and toast that many consumers crave.
