The 2020 Chardonnay Cuvée Cleo takes on more depth, with orange flower, pineapple, and beeswax. Up front, the palate is ripe with golden orchard fruit and apricot, as well as orange peel and a hint of warming spice. The palate is full and opulent, with a suspended yet clean texture, making this an incredibly elegant and profound wine. Drink it over the next 10 or more years.

The 2019 Chardonnay Cuvée Cleo is a smaller production release that's a cellar selection of the best Chardonnay on the estate. Its style is more tight, closed, and mineral-driven compared to the Wayfarer Vineyard release, but it offers similar orchard fruits, chalky minerality, white flowers, and toasty nuances. Brilliant on the palate as well, it's medium to full-bodied, with a terrific spine of acidity, flawless balance, and brilliant length on the finish. This is a spectacular wine on all accounts and I suspect the white of the vintage. It too will benefit from a year or so in bottle and cruise for a good decade.
