2013 Rincon Vineyard Chardonnay

Owned by the Talley Family, who have farmed Southern San Luis Obispo County for three generations, the Rincon Vineyard dates back to 1982. Planted just 8 miles Northeast of the Pacific Ocean, the vineyard has soils that are reminiscent of Burgundy, in particularly the Côte de Nuits with its steep terrain. Working closely with the Talley Family, Testarossa owners, Rob and Diana Jensen, and Director of Winemaking Bill Brosseau, have created this very exceptional Chardonnay with classic old world flavors.

TASTING NOTES

Medium straw hue. Scents of mango, coconut, peach, and pear unite in this engaging Chardonnay. These aromas carry over to the flavor profile along with a surge of dense caramel. Vibrancy, purity, and a bright palate give a brilliance to this wine while the finish is soft, lush, and loaded with caramel. Enjoy now through 2025.
