DuMOL Chardonnay 'Chloe' Ritchie Vineyard 2017
VM95: The 2017 Chardonnay Chloe Ritchie Vineyard is beautifully floral and perfumed, with soaring aromatics and racy, layered fruit. There is plenty of depth, but in this range, the Ritchie stands out for its lifted, gracious feel and exceptional balance.
WA95: The 2017 Chardonnay Chloe Ritchie Vineyard was barrel fermented and aged 12 months on the lees in 33% new oak. It opens to aromas of yellow peach, quince paste, baked apples and spicy oak touches with accents of honey, toast, hay and white flowers plus touches of seashell and lime peel. Light to medium-bodied, it's intensely flavored with a mineral/savory dichotomy in the mouth, mouthwatering acidity and a long, layered and textured finish. Wow! 750 cases produced.
