Green-gold. Leesy aromas of pear skin, baking spices, orange pith and brown butter, with a suggestion of white flowers. Big, rich and sappy, but with a firm spine of acidity adding focus to the vivid orchard fruit and candied citrus flavors. Picks up weight with air, finishing with superb length and lingering notes of smoke, bitter citrus and minerals. This is still pretty young. Two-thirds of this fruit, which is all Wente clones according to Andy Smith, came from the Ritchie vineyard.

My favorite 2008 DuMol white is the 2008 Chardonnay Chloe, which comes primarily from the Ritchie Vineyard's 36-year old parcel planted with the old Wente clone. A big, extroverted perfume of orange rinds, citrus oil, lychee nuts, quince and white currants intermingled with a hint of crushed rocks soars from the glass of this dry, full-bodied Chardonnay. With exuberant fruit intensity, a structured mouthfeel and amazing length, it should drink well for a decade or more.
