The warmth of the Wahluke Slope produces Chardonnay with an appealing tropical fruit character and rich texture. The 2007 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.
"This is a bigger, riper, softer and richer version of Ste. Michelle's Columbia Valley Chardonnay. Here the fruit slides into tropical, with flavors of ripe peach, banana and mango. There are plenty of buttery nut flavors, and a hint of alcoholic heat. A great choice for richly sauced shellfish." 89 Points
