Yet another very well-made Chardonnay from Testarossa that reminds that single-vineyard designation does not always mean that a wine is better than one without, this appellation bottling from the Santa Lucia Highlands stands with its partner from the Santa Rita Hills in delivering plenty to like. It, too, is fresh and fruity and, if arguably not quite as deep or complex as it maker’s top efforts, it is by no means a simple wine and displays very fine balance with a forthright and long-lasting message of oak-sweetened apples.
Limpid yellow-gold. Honeydew melon, pear nectar and Meyer lemon aromas are complemented by suggestions of sweet butter and smoky lees. Silky and appealingly sweet, offering juicy, spice-tinged melon and orchard fruit flavors and a touch of vanilla. A spicy ginger note comes up on the finish, which clings with good tenacity and repeating pear and spice notes. (JR)
