Chateau Ste. Michelle Indian Wells Chardonnay 2008


SKU 885866599350


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.

Wine AdvocateThe Chardonnay offerings begin with the 2008 Chardonnay Indian Wells. Light gold-colored, it displays a nose of toast, pear, melon, and baking spices (thyme and tarragon). On the palate this medium-bodied effort has good volume, spicy flavors, and a lengthy finish. It is an excellent value in quality Chardonnay.

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