2013 Lone Oak Vineyard Chardonnay

Lone Oak Vineyard is owned by the Hahn Family and located near the center of the Santa Lucia Highlands Appellation. Lone Oak is located directly next door to Rosella’s Vineyard at about 250-400 feet in elevation and has an Eastern exposure. Testarossa Winery began making Lone Oak Chardonnay in 2010 and currently receives 20 of the 78 acres of Chardonnay planted. The Wente and Clone 4 vines were planted back in 1974.

TASTING NOTES:

"Pale straw hue. Engaging scents of fig, brioche, honey, melon, and grapefruit. Upon aeration, these characteristics intensify in the palate. The contrasting notes of honey and grapefruit create some tension, leading into the brisk and vibrant mouthfeel. This cool climate Chardonnay offers much hedonisim yet built on a solid foundation for cellaring. Enjoy now through 2022." - Bill Brosseau, Director of Winemaking
