- Kali Hart is named for Robb Talbott's youngest daughter, Kalin Hart and is meant to showcase characteristics of the cool growing area of Monterey's Santa Lucia Highlands. Made from 100% estate-grown fruit. Monterey is one of the best places on earth for growing Chardonnay. The two-mile-deep underwater canyon that begins just offshore and the clockwork fog that rolls in daily from the Pacific Ocean provide a constant cooling influence
A pure fruit expression of our vineyard, Talbott Chardonnay, Kali Hart is lush and lively. Minimal winemaker influence allows Kali Hart Chardonnay to showcases the strength of Talbott's estate vineyards. The rich, inviting nose shows bright tropical notes that continue on the palate, where refreshing flavors of pineapple and honeydew are complimented by refreshing acidity. A generous mid-palate leads to a long citrus and tropical fruit finish with hints of French oak and minerality.
