Madroña Chardonnay Signature 2012

Member Review by shsim:

This was part of Apple Hill, El Dorado, beginning at Grace Patriot wines and covering Lava Cap, Crystal Basin, Jack Russell Brewing, Boa Vista and Madroña in the same area. This was at Madroña. They served the reds before the whites and that kind of messed up the taste buds a little. This was a tough one after all the tannic reds. There is really not much to notes accept the little oak tasted. Sad day. For all you know, it was good.

Paul Bush manages the vineyards himself, adding to the family’s knowledge of grape varieties, clones within a variety, and microclimates. “Intensive hands-on vineyard practices make wines that are frankly exceeding what we thought possible at these high elevations,” says Paul, “And we’re going to keep on improving over the next 30 years.” Madroña Vineyards is a member of the Apple Hill Wineries and the El Dorado Winery Association. We host and pour at many special events throughout the year. Read less

They served the reds before the whites and that kind of messed up the taste buds a little. Sweet and syrupy. Perhaps something that took away the taste of the tannins.
