"Made with a 5 splash of new French oak, the 2017 Chardonnay Kali Hart has an inviting nose of baked Golden Delicious apples, guava, lemon cream, honeycomb and crushed nuts with minerally hints. The palate is medium to full-bodied with gregarious, tropical-tinged fruits and great freshness to lift the long finish."
"Kali Hart is Talbott's most fruit-forward expression of Sleepy Hollow Vineyard. In the winery, the grapes guide the way with minimal influence, resulting in a luscious, bright wine. Aromas of vanilla and brioche in the aroma lead to notes of mandarin, pineapple and melon contribute to an unctuous, inviting palate. Following the dense tropical fruit flavors, there is a soft, wonderfully clean finish with a touch of minerality and hard spice notes." ~Winemaker Notes
