Like all of our wines, our Talbott Chardonnay Sleepy Hollow Vineyard is made exclusively from estate-grown grapes. Two-thirds of the grapes for this wine are sourced from select old Wente clone fruit planted in 1972 that provide amazing depth and fullness. This wine displays all of the concentrated layers of tropical fruit, citrus, and minerals that have made our Sleepy Hollow Vineyard famous. The vineyard is situated on 585 prime acres of benchland in the Santa Lucia Highlands, 13 miles south of Monterey CA. This wine has come to define Talbott style with power, richness, integrated oak and bright, cool-climate acidity. Enjoy!
