- Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2014 Product #30802 (In Stock)
Steve MacRostie creates this classy Chardonnay from grapes grown in some of the most exciting regions of California's Sonoma Coast. Sangiacomo and Hi Vista vineyards in Carneros give richness and texture. Several Russian River Valley sites - including sites owned by the Dutton and Martinelli familes - give lift, purity and vibrancy. And MacRostie's own Wildcat Mountain Vyd just west of Carneros adds fantastic complexity and length.
All of the fruit is pressed whole cluster (without destemming) to maintain clarity and freshness. About 90% ferments and ages in (20% new) French oak for more richness and body while 20% stays in stainless steel to retain crispness and cut.
"Features a delicious core of vibrant grapefruit and lemon-laced tangerine and white peach notes, with zesty acidity that keeps the flavors fresh and jumping."Wine Spectator 90 points
