Like all of our wines, our Talbott Chardonnay, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard is made exclusively from estate-grown grapes. It has aromas of pear and green apple, complemented by French oak and toasty brioche notes. On the palate, it is lush and elegant, with a creamy mouthfeel and flavors of white peach and pear. Round oak tannins are perfectly balanced by acidity, and there is a long finish that builds over time. The Sleepy Hollow Vineyard defines this wine, with power, richness, and bright (cool-climate, zone 1) acidity.

A fresh and vibrant white, with lively pear, melon and green apple flavors, accented by a pithy tangerine skin edge. Ends gracefully. Drink now.

Green melon, lime peels and lime blossoms show on the nose of this racy wine from the historic regional producer. The green fruit flavors carry to the palate, where Granny Smith apples, green Anjou pear and lime juice mix with lemon peel and white rocks.
