93pts Antonio Galloni's Vinous

91pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Limpid yellow. A complex bouquet evokes pear nectar, tangerine, honeydew, brioche, vanilla and succulent flowers. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering concentrated citrus and orchard fruit and buttered toast flavors and a hint of toasty lees. Rich yet lively in style, showing excellent clarity on an impressively long, mineral- and floral-accented finish that leaves melon and pear notes behind. 23% new French oak. Drinking window: 2021-2026." Apr 2020

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Chardonnay Estate, aged 14 months in 20% new French oak, has open-knit aromas of apple pie, crushed stone, sweet spices, quince paste and hay with notions of honeysuckle and honeyed almonds. The palate is medium-bodied, silky and lively, demonstrating great restraint of fruit and just enough of that savory character. It’s refreshed by bright acidity and finishes long and bright. Drink date: 2020-2025." Feb 2020

Winery: "The signature white wine of Talley Vineyards, the Estate Chardonnay represents a pure expression of the calcareous soils and cool maritime climate of the Arroyo Grande Valley produced in a classic old world style, incorporating barrel fermentation and aging. This bottling dates to the inaugural vintage of 1986 and was the first Chardonnay produced in the Arroyo Grande Valley.

Light gold in appearance, the Estate Chardonnay offers aromas of freshly churned butter with a hint of rose petal. On the palate, notes of honey-roasted peanuts lead to a rich and toasty finish."
