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.

($26) Pale yellow. Mineral-driven lemon and pear on the nose, with a suave note of blood orange adding interest. Precise citrus and orchard fruit flavors show very good concentration, with minerality gaining strength on the finish, which is broad, sappy and long. Admirably balanced chardonnay.
