2015 Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay

Working closely wtih the top vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands’ appellation, Testarossa has produced yet another distinctive vintage of this highly anticipated Chardonnay. The Highlands is one of the state’s best known regions for world-class Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The area’s close proximity to Monterey Bay makes for a very cool climate, with one of California’s longest growing seasons. The resulting slow, gentle ripening allows for full flavor development on the vine. Testarossa’s production team’s partnership with the best estates in the Santa Lucia Highlands ensure only the highest quality fruit makes it to the winery.

tasting notes

"Medium yellow color.  Scents of grapefruit, kiwi, apples, banana, fig, and cinnamon.  With some time, additional notes of vanilla bean, peach, apricot, maple syrup, honey, and jasmine flow from the glass.  The complex aroma profile sails gracefully to the palate, with a focal point of grapefruit and maple syrup.  Vibrant acidity and a polished texture give way to a full, lingering, and lively finish.  Enjoy now through 2025. "
