2016 Rosemary’s Vineyard Chardonnay Magnum

2016 Rosemary’s Vineyard Chardonnay Magnum Image
Overlooking the Pacific Ocean and surrounding Rosemary Talley’s home, Rosemary’s Vineyard is the coolest site at Talley Vineyards, has distinctive chalky shale soils and produces chardonnay marked by refreshing acidity. It produces our most ageworthy and highly regarded wines. Golden yellow in appearance, the 2016 vintage of Rosemary’s Chardonnay offers aromas of peach skin, lychee fruit, orange blossom, and a hint of toast. On the palate, notes of green apple and mandarin rind are bolstered by exceptional acid and luscious salinity. Enjoy this refreshing Chardonnay with fresh scallops and avocado or caprese risotto.
Limit 3 magnums per customer.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The 2016 growing season was one of the very best in the 30 year history of Talley Vineyards. After four years of severe drought, El Niño conditions brought the most rainfall to the region since 2011. After a cool and windy spring, temperatures throughout the season were moderate, especially during the critical summer months when veraison and ripening occurred. The absence of severe heat for any extended period during the harvest season meant that the grapes were harvested at a moderate pace at optimal ripeness. Yields in the vineyard were consistent with five year averages and the resulting wines reflect the concentration, balance and elegance that is the hallmark of the confluence of a perfect growing season and a wine growing approach committed to capturing all the potential of the San Luis Obispo Coast region.
