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.
Straw hue. Engaging scents of fig, apricot, and grapefruit, followed by elements of butterscotch, vanilla bean, and crème brulee. Upon taste, these qualities unite harmoniously around youthful texture, bright acidity, and an expansive mouthfeel. This Chardonnay Appellation blend ends with a fresh and long finish. Enjoy now through 2025.

"Bright golden color; smooth and lush with toasty notes and racy acidity; ripe and juicy, rich and tangy, balanced."
