Robert Talbott Vineyards Monterey County
Small operation with vineyard resources in the Salinas Foothills and Santa Lucia Mountains. There are four regular Chardonnays, Kali-Hart, Logan, Sleepy Hollow and the pricier Diamond T Estate, which is a marvellously stylish cool-climate example, delivering very fine fruit from low yields with very well judged, fine-grained oak and a rich leesy complexity. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered. The Diamond T is among the best on the Central Coast and has been joined by another limited release, Cuvée Sarah. Look out also for recently added Pinot Noir, which include the same brands as the Chardonnays as well as two super premium wines Sarah and RFT. Expect quality to match the whites. (DM)
