2015 Oliver’s Vineyard Chardonnay
This chardonnay is produced entirely from the original section of Oliver’s Vineyard planted in 1991 and named for Talley Farms founder Oliver Talley. One of two vineyards owned by the Talley Family in the Edna Valley AVA, just four miles from the ocean, the sandy clay loam soil of the site produces balanced Chardonnay with pronounced saline notes in the aroma and flavor.
The 2015 vintage of Oliver’s Vineyard Chardonnay is light straw in appearance. The nose reveals alluring aromas of Valencia orange and morning toast. The palate is rich and suave, with notes of mandarin peel, white peach, and apricot. This chardonnay will pair beautifully with a fresh orzo and spinach salad or dishes featuring avocado, including guacamole.
