2011 Talley Rosemary’s Vineyard Arroy Grande Valley Chardonnay
This wine has rich aromas of lemon zest and crème brulee with a hint of orange blossom. Initial flavors of fresh apricots and lemon curd give way to a lingering finish of toast and minerality. This wine has a rich, creamy texture balanced by a bright acidity and flintiness characteristic of Rosemary’s Chardonnay. This wine pairs well with oysters and grilled lobster.
“Even more impressive and getting a big “Wow!” in my notes, the mineral-tinged 2011 Chardonnay Rosemary’s Vineyard dishes out thrilling aromas and flavors of citrus blossom, toasted bread, white flowers and hints of poached apples. Silky, elegant and finesse-driven, it builds on the palate and has awesome depth and richness. Count me as a fan. This beauty can be consumed anytime over the coming decade. Drink now-2023. These knockout efforts are made by Brian Talley and were some of the most impressive Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs I tasted during my more than two week trip through the central coast. In addition to their estate offerings, their Bishop’s Peak releases reviewed here come from purchased grapes throughout the central coast and offer good typicity and drinkability for not much buck.” – 95 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
