Winemaker Notes

Talbott Chardonnay, Diamond T Vineyard is made using a selection of the finest estate grapes from our Diamond T Vineyard. It displays ripe tropical aromas, as well as layers of citrus and minerals. These elements are repeated on the palate, along with sweet vanilla bean flavors. Excellent acidity brings freshness and focus to the wine, and will contribute to its ageability. The finish is long and lingering, with elements from the French oak aging providing additional depth and complexity. This is a cool-climate Chardonnay with power, rich tropical flavors and minerality.

Critical Acclaim

The Wine Advocate

The 2011 Chardonnay Diamond T Vineyard is decadent stuff. All barrel-fermented and aged for 14 months on lees in 45% new French oak, it's a rich, full-flavored effort that stays balanced and pure, with knockout detail and clarity on the palate. Offering up notes of grilled peaches, toast, honey, vanilla custard and flower oil, it's a full-bodied, balanced white that has great underlying acidity and focus.

I was blown away by these current releases and across the board the wines show beautiful balance and loads of class. In addition, the Kali Hart and Logan releases are serious values that should not be missed!
