The wine is very refined and expressive, with ripe citrus aromas, and a deep core of rich pear and honeydew melon flavors that bring fantastic complexity. The finish is filled with a touch of butter, a hint of toasted hazelnut, and refreshing acidity.
Jeb Dunnuck 93 Points: “Lots of tropical fruits, honeyed apple, spice, and floral notes emerge from the 2020 Chardonnay Rosemary’s Vineyard, another estate release that was brought up in around one-third new French oak. It too is medium-bodied, racy, and pure, with good balance as well as length.”
Winemaker Notes: “Rosemary’s Chardonnay is the most elegant expression of Talley Vineyards. Planted in 1987, Rosemary’s Vineyard is climatically our coolest estate vineyard and produces a nuanced Chardonnay with an aromatic appeal. The 2020 vintage is long and complex on the palate with lingering notes of fresh orange and nectarine.”
