WE 90 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Another fine Chardonnay from this producer. It’s typical of the vineyard, showing intensely concentrated tropical and citrus fruit and green apple flavors, enhanced with mouthwatering acidity. Vertical tastings of this bottling show its ability to slowly evolve in the bottle over as much as eight years.
Winemakers Notes - Like all of our wines, our Talbott Chardonnay Sleepy Hollow Vineyard is made exclusively from estate-grown grapes. Produced from almost entirely Old Wente clone chardonnay grapes planted in 1972 from our prized South Block. It also includes a samll amount of grapes from our 20 year old Dijon clone vines. On the palate, it is lush and elegant, with a creamy mouthfeel and flavors of white peach and pear. The vineyard is situated on 585 prime acres of benchland in the Santa Lucia Highlands, 13 miles south of Monterey CA. This wine has come to define Talbott style with power, richness, integrated oak and bright cool-climate acidity. Rated 90+
