Food Pairings for Macrostie Chardonnay Carneros
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
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 thewine 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.
Shows the crisp acidity and delicately silky mouthfeel of Carneros Chard, with ripe flavors of pineapples, guavas, kiwis and minerals. Could be a tad drier, but itrsquo;s a pretty nice wine.
Intriguing floral scents lead to generous lime flavors overlain by oak. For my taste, the straight-on lime flavors of Carneros Chardonnay can form a strange partnership with oak. This one is lively, linear and quite good, better perhaps when the fruit has some time to absorb more of the oak.
Intense, with spicy, cedary oak and a solid core of ripe pear, melon and peach-laced flavors. finishes with toasty, smoky oak and a bit of coarseness, so short-term cellaring is advised. Try from 1999 through 2002.
Vibrant tropical fruit dosed with moderate levels of wood dominate the personality of this medium-bodied, cleanly made Chardonnay. Although not complex, it is mouthfilling, fruity, and attractive in an unpretentious way. Drink it over the next year.
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.
Beautiful pale straw gold in color, the aromas are reminiscent of lime oil and crème brulée. In the mouth there is lush baked apple and ripe mango, with a hint of cinnamon toast. It finishes with a good deal of weight, but is still light on its feet.
