Kali-Hart Vineyard Chardonnay

Kali-Hart Vineyard Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $13.50 per bottle

Description: Kali Hart is the youngest of the Talbott's children and, like her, this wine is the most recent addition to the Talbott wine family. This Chardonnay is fresh and exuberant with medium body and the distinctive Talbott style of lush tropical fruit, toasty oak and minerals with a long citrus filled finish. The wine has great acid balance and is made to be enjoyed now.

Varietal Definition
Chardonnay is by far the most widely planted grape crop in California and dominates California’s cooler, coastal, quality wine regions. The natural varietal ‘taste and smell’ of Chardonnay is surprisingly unfamiliar to many wine drinkers, as its true character is often guised with dominating winemaking signatures. Chardonnay’s rather subdued primary fruit characteristics lean toward the crisp fruitiness of apples, pears and lemon, but the variety’s full body is capable of supporting a host of complementary characteristics, such as oak, butter and vanilla. Regardless of what is the appropriate style for Chardonnay, the varietal continues to dominate vineyard plantings in every corner of the world. Close attention to clonal selection has made this broad geographic and climactic range of Chardonnay viable in thoughtful viticultural hands.
