Soft yellow in color, this 2012 vintage of Oliver's Chardonnay expresses beautiful aromas of tropical fruit and lemon blossom, followed by subtle hints of toasty oak. Bright acidity with lively notes of pineapple and tart lemon combine to produce a wine of elegance and freshness. This balanced wine finishes clean and long with a taut acidity. Pair this 2012 Oliver's Chardonnay with herb crusted halibut or snapper in a butter sauce.

Wine Profile
Ratings
91 Ponts. Antonio Galloni, July 2014. Talley's 2012 Chardonnay Oliver's Vineyard is laced with sage, rosemary, mint and melon. Soft, layered and expressive in the glass, the Oliver's is already quite nuanced and expressive. Here it is the wine's silky personality that stands out most. Drink now - 2017.
Vineyard Notes
The 2012 vintage was one of those rare years where both quality and yield were exceptional, probably the best overall since 2005. The growing season was ideal with slightly below average rainfall, moderate canopy growth and very little mildew or botrytis. Due to excellent spring weather, fruit set was ideal. Yields were about 20% above average and the resulting wines are elegant and balanced.
