2017 Chardonnay Arroyo Grande (Talley Vineyards)
Talley Vineyards, Chardonnay, Arroyo Grande, California 2017100% Chardonnay RIPE PEAR & SPICED APPLE, CREAMY BUT BRIGHT Ripe and wrapped in loving, creamy oak, this sumptuous, sizable Chardonnay is also enticingly balanced with citrusy undercurrents and a fresh finish. While occasionally delving into less expected varieties, San Luis Obispo’s Talley never strays too far from its Burgundian focus, crafting Chardonnays and Pinots that are at once classically composed and imbued with a richness and ripeness that tends to set them apart from their French counterparts – in this case, gentle tropicality and suave vanilla toast. Serving Suggestion: Lobster roll on brioche bun w/ brown butter. Spinach-cheddar quiche w/ lemon cream cheese.
