This Chardonnay was produced entirely from the original section of Oliver's Vineyard planted in 1991 and named for Talley Farms founder Oliver Talley. One of two vineyards owned by the Talley Family in the Edna Valley AVA, just four miles from the ocean, the soil type of the vineyard is Marimel Sandy Clay Loam. Light straw in color, the 2014 vintage of Oliver's Vineyard Chardonnay is a stunning expression of the appellation. Aromas of pear and toasted almonds are layered with a hint of oak that continues on the palate. Light in weight and marked with bright acidity, the 2014 Oliver's Vineyard Chardonnay culminates in a smooth, dry finish. Try pairing this elegant wine with fresh seafood paella.

Wine AdvocateAnother terrific white is the 2014 Chardonnay Oliver's Vineyard, which is located in the Edna Valley and was planted in 1991 (it's named after Talley Farms founder Oliver Talley). Barrel-fermented and aged 15 months in 16% new French oak, it's a richer, mineral-laced effort that offers lots of buttered orchard fruits, caramelized citrus and brioche to go with a textured, layered style on the palate that still has impressive purity, tension and acidity. Drink it over the coming 5-6 years.
