Aromas of tangerine, orange and honey are offset with flint, mint
and oyster shell notes. The wine is deep, intense, long and focused
with great volume. Layered flavors akin to peach, nectarine and
candied ginger build through the palate. There’s an oily texture that’s
cut by vibrant acidity and the finish lingers with fine detail and
enveloping power.

Pouring a bright medium yellow/straw hue, the 2021 Chardonnay Chloe is highly expressive, with a golden perfume of pineapple, orange oil, and a bit of honeysuckle. It has full body and a rounded texture, with ripe apricot, hazelnut, and white flowers. A lusher personality to drink over the next ten years, it’s a bit more open at this youthful stage.

Balanced to a T, this fascinating wine matches ripe and rich poached pear and golden apple flavors with a vein of lemony acidity that keeps it refreshing sip after sip. It's medium to full in body.
