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 2010

Dense and round but energetic, with ripe acids supporting the sweet citrus and tropical fruit, spice and floral flavors. In a distinctly gentle, ripe style for Talley and likely to give early pleasure. Brian Talley said that "this is the one for fans of rich, older school California chardonnay.
