About Talley Vineyards
Before the Talley family made wine, they grew peppers, avocados, zucchini and more. In fact, in the Arroyo Grande Valley, the Talley’s have more of a name for vegetable growing than winemaking. The balance, however, is swaying, if not shifting, as the family wine operation, started in 1982, has continued to pick up steam.
92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2007
($40) Hazy yellow. Smoky, lees-dominated pear and peach aromas offer noteworthy complexity. Stony, chewy orchard fruit flavors are complicated by exotic minerality and a wild iodine quality. This is about way more than just fruit, in a Burgundian manner. Finishes with striking stony grip and length. I love this style of chardonnay.
