Produced entirely from own rooted chardonnay planted by Don Talley in 1984 at the top of the Eastern hillside of the Rincon Vineyard, the site is marked by calcareous clay soils where the vines struggle to produce small crops of intensely flavored grapes. It has been recognized by Wine Enthusiast Magazine as a Grand Cru of California. Offers aromas of bright lemon, confectioners’ sugar, and a touch of flint. Notes of roasted coffee bean, Asian pear, and honeysuckle on the palate are matched with mouth watering salinity. Try pairing this alluring chardonnay with swordfish and roasted vegetables or a spinach and leek frittata.
