TALLEY CHARDONNAY, RINCON VINEYARD, ARROYO GRANDE VALLEY 2015
(aged for 17 months in French oak barrels, 20% of them new) Bright yellow. Powerful, mineral-accented Meyer lemon, pear and nectarine scents show excellent clarity and complicating suggestions of fennel and toasty lees. Minerally and precise in the mouth, offering concentrated orchard and citrus fruit flavors and deeper suggestions of buttery brioche and honeydew melon. Shows impressive depth as well as energy and finishes silky, gently sweet and very long, displaying a suave floral nuance.
Offering up fragrant peach and ripe pear notes with underlying hints of salted almonds, baking bread and beeswax, the 2015 Chardonnay Rincon Vineyard coats the palate in toasty flavors, featuring a lively backbone and long finish with some mineral coming through.
NVWE Notes: Youthfully bright and notably firm, yet as flavorful as it is energetic, this wine opens with focused aromas of crunchy fresh apple, yellow peach pit, pear skin, preserved lemon, white pepper, baking spices and vanilla. It is more forthcoming and shows fine concentration in the mouth, where suggestions of apple, peach, nectarine, lemon tart, pineapple core, grapefruit, lime and orange zest, brioche, vanilla wafer and white pepper are all on display. The finish is zesty and lingering and the wine wants only time to reveal all of it’s inherent richness. Expect three to five years of improvement, although it will prove a gorgeous dinner partner already. 437 cases produced.
