According to Wine Spectator - Lean and spicy, this white features an earthy edge to the pear and tobacco flavors. Drink now. 30,000 cases made.
According to Wine Enthisiast - Smooth and oaky, with a soft and accessible appeal, this is a more limited production offering than the Chateau’s regular Columbia Valley Chardonnay.
Tasting Notes - The warmth of the Wahluke Slope produces Chardonnay with an appealing tropical fruit character and rich, creamy texture. The Indian Wells Chardonnay delivers ripe sweet fruit flavors with caramel and brown sugar notes. I like this wine with scallops, scampi or pasta with rich sauces.
