Brilliant in the glass, light gold color. Bright citrus, mixed orchard fruits and fresh grassy aromas open to floral, almond and orange marmalade richness. Melon, yellow peach and a fennel note open the palate but orange marmalade really dominates with time. Integrated layers of flavor and texture, creamy, rich and inviting. Power and intensity builds to a rising and expanding, acid-driven finish. Lingering almondy richness.

Wine AdvocateFrom the well-known Ritchie Vineyard, planted with 31-year-old Old Wente clones of Chardonnay, the 2011 Chardonnay Chloe is spectacular. This opulent, flamboyant Chardonnay exhibits lots of white peach, apricot marmalade, honeysuckle and caramelized citrus. Full-bodied with underlying minerality along with terrific purity, texture and sumptuousness, this gorgeous white can be enjoyed over the next 4-5 years.
