"The 2019 Chardonnay Chloe Ritchie Vineyard offers a beguiling combination of structure and exotic tropical accents. The Chloe is another Chardonnay in this range that really needs air to be at its best. Hints of lemon confit, passionfruit, vanillin, dried herbs and crushed rocks make for a Chardonnay long on class and nuance."
