Macrostie Chardonnay Carneros 2007
MacRostie Winery and Vineyards is dedicated to producing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Merlot from the finest Carneros and Sonoma Coast fruit. Featuring estate-grown bottlings from MacRostie's acclaimed Wildcat Mountain Vineyard, the winery also uses grapes from the top sustainably farmed vineyards in those appellations.
Key lime taste apple and mango. Creamy and full bodied. Loamy. Very Good.
During my ongoing quest to rediscover Cal Chard, I was presently surprised to find the Macrostie 2007 Carneros Chard. While maintaining the rich style I associate with Cal Chards, the winemaker used enough restraint to ensure the elements were in harmony. Apple Tart layered with mild spice and vanilla with a refreshing hint of citrus acid made for a very enjoyable wine and a great launching point into what California Chard (not Burgundy style California Chard) can be.

External Reviews for Macrostie Chardonnay Carneros
Loaded with ripe pears and sweet fig flavors, MacRostie's Chardonnay lingers on and on with notes of toasted almonds and cream. Savor with a bold brie or camembert.
Delicate and refreshing, with lively acidity supporting ripe and spicy pear, hazelnut and creamy fig and vanilla notes that are elegant and sophisticated. Drink now through 2008.
Ripe, complex and full-bodied, with an earthy, loamy, leesy pineapple edge to the flavors. Ends with a hint of lemon-citrus meringue. Drink now through 2012.
Lightly aromatic, with a mineral and citrus edge to the green pear and green fig flavors, making it more elegant and restrained than rich and complex. Drink now through 2005.
A very good, useful Chardonnay that's easy to drink, yet also quite complex. Brisk and crisp in acidity, it shows citrus mineral, green apple and floral notes, touched with smoky oak.
