Talbott Vineyards Logan Sleepy Hollow Vineyard Chardonnay 2015
After starting his clothing line in the 1950s, Robert Talbott planted vines in 1982 and quickly established one of the premier wineries in the Santa Lucia Highlands. They craft 100% estate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir each offering a unique expression of the prestigious Sleepy Hollow Vineyard. The Logan Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented, using 20% new oak. Floral aromatics, lush pear, apple and tropical fruits accented with savory vanilla and spice.
WA91: "Opening with gregarious guava, warm pineapple and honeydew melon notes with hints of allspice, toasty oak and cashew pieces, the 2015 Chardonnay Logan Sleepy Hollow Vineyard has a medium to full body and pleasant oiliness to the texture, with bombastic tropical and savory flavors that give great persistence." - The Wine Advocate
VM91: "(30% new French oak): Light, bright gold. Aromas of ripe melon, pear nectar and Meyer lemon, with subtle fennel and jasmine accents emerge with air. Juicy and broad on the palate, offering pliant orchard and pit fruit flavors that are given lift by a spine of zesty acidity. Finishes sappy and quite long, with an echo of ripe citrus fruits and lingering florality." - Vinous Media
