Fall ReleaseChloe Chardonnay
The 2019 Chloe Chardonnay showcases the warmer central Russian River Valley district, wholly distinct from the coastal southwest ridgelines featured in our other wines. The soils here are clay-dominant and amplify the wine’s deep flavor and broad, layered texture.
Our richest 2019 Chardonnay bottling, this wine seamlessly combines three low-yielding classic vineyards which effortlessly provide detail, nuance, power, and finesse. The concentration is offset by lilting acidity, which flickers and fades and provides a counterbalance to all this power.
Deep and intense aromatics of nectarine, apricot, mint leaf, chamomile, and flint. The flavors are expressive and generous with wave upon wave of ripe stone fruits and lemon oil. Layered and expansive, the wine’s deep concentration builds through the palate to a rising finish of mineral-infused acidity and lingering notes of almond and honey. Serve at 58F - not too cold - and drink between 2022 and 2028.
