2013 Mac Rostie, Chardonnay, Russian River
- Crisp & Aromatic
- Russian River, California
90 points @ Wine Enthusiast
The wine has tropical, star fruit and mango aromas along with a hint of jasmine perfume. There is rich weight in the mid-palate from the delicate oak and the wine finishes with clean crisp acidity with just a dash of lingering tangerine. This is a gentle wine, medium in weight, with nuances of green apple and fresh-squeezed lemon. Balanced, it offers a twist of toffee and oak beneath its crisper notes, finishing warm in nutmeg and ginger spice.
Ideal as an appetizers with Friends.
The Winery : Mac Rostie
Founded in 1987 by Sonoma County winemaking pioneer and Chardonnay and Pinot Noir specialist, Steve MacRostie, MacRostie Winery and Vineyards has established itself as one of the Sonoma Coast’s defining wineries, and a leader in a bright, balanced and age-worthy style of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Using grapes farmed by legendary winegrowing families, including the Duttons, Sangiacomos, Martinellis and Bacigalupis, and from Steve’s own Wildcat Mountain Vineyard in the mountainous Petaluma Gap region, MacRostie has assembled one of the Sonoma Coast’s most acclaimed and diverse vineyard programs.

The grapes for this wine came from three properties. The fruit was hand-harvested on three different days; September 9th, September 16th and October 2nd. The three distinct harvest dates indicate the individual nature of each site and what each lends to the complexity of this wine.
