Talbott Logan Chardonnay Bottle 2007
100% estate-grown Chardonnay grapes from our beautiful 585 acre Sleepy Hollow Vineyard in the Santa Lucia Highlands of California. Logan Chardonnay is named in honor of Robb's son. Logan is made to strike a perfect balance between the pure fruit character of our estate-grown grapes, and the influence of winemaker Dan Karlsen, a Chardonnay and Pinot Noir specialist for over 30 years. A medium oaked Chardonnay, aged primarily in French oak. Layers of pear, apple and citrus highlighted by a hint of vanilla. Sleepy Hollow's signature mineral character and creamy texture add complexity to a long finish.
