Notes from the Winemaker:
Like all of our wines, our Talbott Chardonnay, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard is made exclusively from estate-grown grapes. It has aromas of pear and green apple, complemented by French oak and toasty brioche notes. On the palate, it is lush and elegant, with a creamy mouthfeel and flavors of white peach and pear. Round oak tannins are perfectly balanced by acidity, and there is a long finish that builds over time. The Sleepy Hollow Vineyard defines this wine, with power, richness, and bright (cool-climate, zone 1) acidity.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Chardonnay Sleepy Hollow Vineyard delivers intense grapefruit, lemon curd and white peach notes with hints of cedar, nutmeg, fresh ginger and marzipan with a waft of beeswax. The medium-bodied palate delivers on flavors, with bags of citrus and spice characters, supported by a creamy texture and just enough freshness, finishing long." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (29th Sep 2017)

92 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"(50% new French oak): Limpid yellow-gold. Displays potent, mineral-accented aromas of tangerine, white peach, honey and tarragon. Sappy and concentrated in style, offering ripe pit and orchard fruit flavors that become livelier as the wine opens up. A gingery flourish adds spicy cut to a long, lees-tinged finish that leaves behind sweet butter and honey notes." - Josh Raynolds (Nov 2017)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Complex, with a rich core of pear, apple and honeydew melon flavors, shaded by floral scents and a kiss of light cedary oak. Drink now. 3,700 cases made." – JL (Web Only - 2017)
