Talbott Kali Hart Vineyard Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Monterey|
Kali Hart is our most fruit-forward expression in the Talbott family of wines. In the winery, we let the grapes guide the way with minimal influence, resulting in a rich and bright wine. Aromas of vanilla and brioche rise out of the glass to greet you. Ripe and intense notes of Bosc pear, pineapple, tangerine and melon give this wine a luscious, inviting palate. This Chardonnay shines with a soft, clean finish, a hint of minerality and hard spice notes.
Light, bright yellow. Fresh pear, lemon pith, jasmine and a hint of vanilla on the nose. Silky and focused on the palate, offering lively citrus and orchard fruit flavors that deepen and pick up a hint of sweetness with air. Closes on a gently smoky note, displaying tight focus and lingering floral and Meyer lemon notes.
Gravenstein apple, fresh pear and a hint of gardenia make for a clean and broad nose in this always solid bottling. It's plush and round on the palate, where baked white-peach and vanilla flavors are lifted by clove and cinnamon accents.
