Talbott Sleepy Hollow Vineyard Chardonnay 2014
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Lightly toasted almond, melted butter, chalk and Meyer lemon scents are delicately woven together in this expressive yet restrained bottling. There is well dispersed acidic energy throughout the palate, where smoked lemon flavors lead into sea salt and white flower notes on the finish.
Light bright gold. Fresh orange, nectarine and melon scents are complemented by floral and dusty mineral notes. Smooth and expansive on the palate, offering poached pear and peach nectar flavors that pick up a subtle honeyed quality as the wine opens up. Lush and supple in style, delivering strong closing thrust and lingering hints of buttered toast and candied citrus zest.
Fresh and crunchy, with ripe nectarine, baked apple and lemon meringue flavors, supported by firm acidity. The spicy finish offers lemon curd and pastry notes. Drink now through 2022. 12,225 cases made.
