MacRostie Chardonnay Carneros 2006
One star from the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: "Sporting lots of ripe-apple and sweet-pear qualities along with a dollop of complementary oak in its concentrated aromas and its juicy, nicely-stuffed flavors, this lively, full-bodied youngster may be a little direct and lacking in nuance just now, but it has the kind of fruity depth and structure that make for easy predictions of better a year or two hence. (Feb. 2008) From sustainably farmed vineyards in Carneros, MacRostie's 2006 Chardonnay is blended from grapes grown in top vineyards including Beckstoffer, Sangiacomo and MacRostie's own Wildcat Mountain Estate Vineyard, among others. To highlight the more delicate fruit and aromatic components, a few lots of this wine were tank fermented and saw no oak. The remaining lots were barrel-fermented in French and Hungarian oak barrels (20% new), they completed malo and were aged on the lees for six months. The resulting wine is a complex, golden-hued affair with baked custard and lemon oil aromas. On the palate the wine layers crisp apple and tropical fruit and a touch of cinnamon. The finish is clean and refreshing with enticing acidity.
