2020 Talley Vineyards Estate Chardonnay, Arroyo Grande Valley, USA (750ml)
Aromas of lemon blossom, saline, white peach, lime rind and almond paste. Mouthwatering white nectarine, gardenia, grapefruit, golden apple, pear, and marcona almond on the palate.
Vivid straw-yellow. Fresh pear, lemon curd and melon aromas are complemented by hints of jasmine and salted butter. Silky and energetic in the mouth, offering juicy Meyer lemon, Anjou pear and buttered toast flavors and a spicy jolt of candied ginger. Finishes with subtle grip, a repeating floral note and impressive, sappy persistence. Drinking window: 2021 - 2027
- Vinous, 92 pts.
Subtle hints of macadamia nut, baked lemon meringue, butter and sea salt are presented in a mellow, subtle manner on the nose of this bottling, which would make a pleasant apéritif for any gathering. There’s a taut frame to the sip, where lemon peel and lychee meet with a kiss of oak and a pinch of nutmeg.
