The 2016 Chateau Ste. Michelle 'Indian Wells' Chardonnay is a marvelous wine. The nose is intense with bright pear, green apple and creme brûlée aromatics with toasty oak. The texture to this great value Chardonnay is oily and is satisfying. Rich vanilla creme brulee, poached pear, lemon zest and marzipan flavors all impress all the way through the finish.
