Talley Chard Arroyo Grande Valley
Yields in 2015 in coastal san luis obispo county were the lowest since 2011 due to inclement spring weather which caused poor fruit set as well as the effects of the ongoing drought. Warm and dry summer conditions coupled with the small yield resulted in an early harvest which was completed in our estate vineyards on september 22 2015. The wines produced in 2015 will be similar to those produced in the immediately preceding vintages of 2013 and 2014 emphasizing harmony and balanced acidity though with more concentration due to the low yields.
