2015 Talley Vineyards Edna Valley Chardonnay
Produced entirely from Oliver’s Vineyard, including both the original 1991 planting and the more recent 2006 section, this wine is meant to express both the classic Talley Vineyards style and the distinctive character of the Edna Valley AVA, marked by calcareous clay soils and cool marine influenced climate. The 2015 vintage is brilliant yellow gold in color, revealing crisp aromatics of lime leaf, yellow apple, wet granite, and a hint of marzipan. The palate is bright with notes of lime rind, early-pick tangerine, and a dash of almond flour. This well-balanced wine finishes off with flavors of toasted baguette with salted French butter. Enjoy with roasted Brussels sprouts or chicken risotto.
