Talbott’s famed Sleepy Hollow Vineyard was described as a California Grand Cru Chardonnay vineyard by Wine Enthusiast magazine for its ability to produce exceptional wines year after year. We've got the Talbott Sleepy Hollow Chardonnay 2016 vintage so that you can see for yourself. This single vineyard, estate Chardonnay is deliriously food friendly and will go with everything from fried shrimp to asparagus risotto to a fall roasted chicken with root vegetables. Oh, and Thanksgiving turkey; it pairs like a glove with turkey...

James Suckling: "Spice, coconut, dried-apple and pear aromas follow through to a full body with density and intensity. Full and oily with a long and flavorful finish. Layered. Foursquare. Screw cap."

Winery: "This Chardonnay is representative of the world-class Chardonnay consistently produced from the celebrated Sleepy Hollow Vineyard. This wine offers aromas of jasmine, sandalwood and vanilla along with richer notes of brioche and butterscotch. On the palate, lively minerality adds complexity to characteristics of green apple, Crenshaw melon, ripe Bosc pear and Meyer lemon accented by notes of butter and cream. Rich and vibrant, this elegant Chardonnay has a satiny smooth finish with alluring hints of cinnamon and hard spices."
