Columbia Valley, Washington State, USA
A Washington Chardonnay gets a touch of the tropics in the Chateau Ste Michelle Indian Wells Chardonnay. This Chardonnay is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes sourced from warm sites in the Columbia Valley. Warm days cause the grapes to assert sweet citrus and tropical characteristics, while cool nights promote good structure, balance and flavor intensity. The result is a Chardonnay with an appealing tropical fruit character of pineapple, along with notes of caramel, vanilla and butter and a rich, creamy texture. The wine's full body lets the flavors of the wine really stand out for a pleasant sipping experience both on its own and with food. Serve Chateau Ste. Michelle's Indian Wells Chardonnay as a delicious complement to scallops, scampi or pasta with rich sauces for a beautifully paired meal.
