2016 Talley Vineyards Estate Chardonnay Arroyo Grande Valley USA
This appellation blend is a very downthe- middle style of classic California Chardonnay, with ample amounts of oak, butter, baked lemon and ripe apple on the nose. The palate pairs golden apples with buttercream and a light brush of vanilla, with acid that powers deep into the finish.

The larger production 2016 Chardonnay Estate is certainly worth your time and money and is a great intro to the wines from this terrific estate. Salted apple, brioche, white flowers, toasted bread, and plenty of classic Central Coast salty minerality notes give way to a medium-bodied, balanced, undeniably delicious Chardonnay that’s perfect for drinking over the coming 4-5 years.
