Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Chardonnay from Talbott is very good. On the nose, there is lots of oak and buttered popcorn with a hint of lemon. We found it to be medium to full bodied with light acidity and a rich and creamy mouthfeel. The flavor profile displays lots of butterscotch with notes of Honeycrisp apple and light minerality mixed in. We would suggest pairing this Chard with asparagus risotto with a squeeze of lemon. Enjoy – Karen and Stuart

Winemaker Notes: Kali Hart is our most fruit-forward expression in the Talbott portfolio of wines. In the winery, we let the grapes guide the way with minimal influence, resulting in a rich and bright wine. Aromas of vanilla and brioche lead to dense fruit characteristics of bosc pear, pineapple and melon, giving this wine a lush and inviting palate. This Chardonnay has a soft, clean finish with a hint of minerality and hard spice notes.
