Talley Vineyards Estate Chardonnay 2016 Review

Chardonnay can be so fun when the alcohol is in check. This wine has all the depth of some of the bigger Chards out there but with restraint and good retention of acidity you can enjoy said depth without hot hot heat burning your nose hairs. It’s very balanced, with a nice, juicy, round palate, and classic aromas of apples and pears mingling with subtle hints of vanilla and that fancy french butter made in bistros. If you're going to spend almost $30 on a Chardonnay you deserve this kind of balance.
