TALLEY 2011 CHARDONNAY RINCON ARROYO GRANDE VALLEY 750mL

ANTONIO GALLONI 92 POINTS - “A cool, implosive wine, the 2011 Rincon Vineyard will thrill readers who like vibrant, pointed Chardonnays. The 2011 is all about energy, poise and nuance, qualities it has in spades. The aromas and flavors are quite expressive, but ultimately, the Rincon is a wine of pure texture. Like all of the 2011s here, the Rincon really needs time in the glass to shine.”

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.
