Winemaker Notes

Notes of lemon tart, jasmine, and orange blossom on the nose with nectarine, green apple, yuzu, and Meyer lemon on the palate.

Critical Acclaim


Limpid yellow. A complex bouquet evokes pear nectar, tangerine, honeydew, brioche, vanilla and succulent flowers. Juicy and energetic on the palate, offering concentrated citrus and orchard fruit and buttered toast flavors and a hint of toasty lees. Rich yet lively in style, showing excellent clarity on an impressively long, mineral- and floral-accented finish that leaves melon and pear notes behind. 23% new French oak. Drinking window: 2021 - 2026.

Jeb Dunnuck

Bright orchard fruits, brioche, toasted bread, and honeysuckle notes all emerge from the 2017 Chardonnay Estate. It's medium-bodied and has a tight, vibrant texture as well as some Burgundian style in its texture and acidity. It's a beautiful effort.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Chardonnay Estate, aged 14 months in 20% new French oak, has open-knit aromas of apple pie, crushed stone, sweet spices, quince paste and hay with notions of honeysuckle and honeyed almonds. The palate is medium-bodied, silky and lively, demonstrating great restraint of fruit and just enough of that savory character. It’s refreshed by bright acidity and finishes long and bright.

Wilfred Wong of
COMMENTARY: The 2017 Talley Vineyards Chardonnay offers excellent richness and brightness on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows lovely aromas and flavors of savory herbs and dried peach skin. Its mineral-like finish pairs it well with Dungeness crab in a mix of garden greens. (Tasted: August 5, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
