Winery Notes:
Our flagship and renowned Chardonnay which is the quintessential expression of our Sleepy Hollow Estate located in the Santa Lucia Highlands of California. Hand picked grapes, barrel aged 12 months in French Oak, 30% new oak. Excellent food wine as it is full bodied, smooth balance, with delicious notes of tangerine, grapefruit, white peach, and toasted almond.

Talbott Chardonnay, Sleepy Hollow Vineyard is crafted from a selection of our finest old-vine Chardonnay. The majority of this fruit comes from self-rooted Wente clone vines, many planted as early as 1972.

This wine has tropical aromas of guava, white peach and nectarine, accented by pear, toasted hazelnut and citrus. The intensity of the wine’s aroma is complemented by French oak and toasty brioche notes. On the palate, the wine is lush and rich, with flavors that echo the aromatics. The finish is long, clean and bone dry, with bright citrus notes and minerality.
