Talbott Chardonnay Kali Hart
TASTING NOTES A pure fruit expression of our vineyard, Talbott Chardonnay, Kali Hart is lush and lively. Minimal winemaker influence allows Kali Hart Chardonnay to showcases the strength of Talbotts estate vineyards. The rich, inviting nose shows bright tropical notes that continue on the palate, where refreshing flavors of pineapple and honeydew are complimented by refreshing acidity. A generous mid-palate leads to a long citrus and tropical fruit finish with hints of French oak and minerality. Kali Hart Chardonnay is named after Robb Talbotts youngest daughter. VINTAGE NOTES With very little precipitation and ideal growing conditions, the 2014 vintage offered picture-perfect growing conditions in the Santa Lucia Highlands, delivering the second spectacular vintage in a row. VINEYARD Kali Hart Chardonnay is made using 100% estate-grown fruit from Talbotts Monterey vineyards. Monterey is one of the best places on earth for growing Chardonnay. The two-mile-deep underwater canyon that begins just offshore and the clockwork fog that rolls in daily from the Pacific Ocean provide a constant cooling influence. Talbott Vineyards is one of the pioneers of world-class Monterey winegrowing, and its estate program, which includes Sleepy Hollow and Diamond T vineyards, is recognized as the finest in the region.
