Robert Talbott Vineyards & Winery Logan Winery Chardonnay 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This vintage of Talbott Chardonnay, Logan has beautifully balanced fruit and oak, a lush texture and well-integrated acidity. The color is medium-straw with great clarity. On the palate, there are layers of ripe apple, pear and pineapple. There are also notes of vanilla and rich toasty oak that lead to a long finish. We recommend drinking this wine now through 2013.

Toasty and spicy on the nose with buttery popcorn notes, and caramel and butterscotch framing notes to the dried peach, candied ginger and papaya fruit. Nicely bright on entry though this has a decidedly honied character. The acidity manages to keep this mostly in balance, but the flavors tend to the ripe end of the spectrum with syrupy notes to the ripe orchard fruits and a candied lime tones coming from the acids. This has tons of acid on the finish, and it’s all needed to keep this in precarious balance. Finishes with some butterscotch candy notes. Not my style at all. 85pts

Really ripe tropical fruit, even some banana on the nose...pretty sweet on the palette with some nice minerality on the finish. Not as oakey as I expected, which is a pleasant surprise!

Weaves together an engaging mix of tropical fruit flavors, with guava, nectarine, pineapple and citrus, giving this a fresh, lively presence on the palate, with the acidity sustaining the flavors. Drink now through 2015. 15,943 cases made. -JL ** SOLD OUT **

Fresh, exuberant, medium-bodied wine with the distinctive Talbott style of lush, tropical fruit, toasty oak and minerals, and a long citrus-filled finish. This regionally inspired wine has great acid balance and is made to enjoy upon release.

Winemaker Notes - Delightful wine to drink on it's own or pair with cheese and food. A classic style full bodied Chardonnay that displays refreshing and bright notes of pear, nectarine, melon, honey, and subtle pleasing French Oak. Estate grown from our Sleepy Hollow Vineyard located in the Santa Lucia Highlands of California.
