Food Pairings for Macrostie Chardonnay
WINEMAKING NOTES: To maintain and highlight the purity of fruit while ensuring quality, the grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed immediately after harvest. After settling, most of the juice was racked to French and Hungarian oak barrels for fermentation (20 percent new). To emphasize more delicate fruit and aromatic components, a few lots were tank fermented, and saw no oak. Once dry and finished with malolactic fermentation, the barrel-fermented lots were aged on the lees for six months, with occasional stirring to increase richness and body. TASTING NOTES: In the glass, this nuanced Carneros Chardonnay is a beautiful pale gold, offering inviting aromatics reminiscent of baked custard and lemon oil. On the palate the wine reveals balanced layers of apple and tropical fruit, accented by a hint of enticing cinnamon spice. The finish is clean, crisp and refreshing, inviting another sip. Though already drinking beautifully, this wine will only gain depth and texture with a few months in bottle.
