TALLEY 2012 CHARDONNAY RINCON ARROYO GRANDE VALLEY 750mL

The Rincon Vineyard (eight miles northeast of the Pacific Ocean) is the oldest of their vineyards with the first plantings dating to 1982. The soil in the Rincon Vineyard is shallow and composed of loam and calcareous clay. This soil type is reminiscent of the vineyards of Burgundy, particularly those in the Côte de Nuits. The shallow soil, coupled with steep hills, facilitates drainage and results in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir yields averaging less than three tons per acre. This wine sees the same élevage (or upbringing) as the Rosemary’s, so the only difference in taste comes from the vineyard itself.

Beautiful aromas of vanilla and honeydew lead into a chalky minerality in this 2012 vintage that is classic Rincon Vineyard. Saturated straw gold in color, the palate opens up with concentrated notes of citrus and lemon curd. The softer, leaner acidity of this wine leads into a smooth finish. Pair this wine with buttery seafood dishes like seared scallops.
