Macrae Family Winery Chardonnay RRV Bacigalupi Vineyard 2005

March 2, 2012

Macrae Family Winery was founded to create ultra premium wines from two of the best viticultural areas in the world, Napa and Sonoma Valleys.  In Sonoma along the Russian River, there are great vineyards like the Bacigalupi that are known for producing great Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs.  The River provides for warm days and cool nights as the fog rolls in allowing for the best natural growing environment for these fruits.  This bottle was given to us by Gerry and Lucy.  I raised an eyebrow when I read the label, as it is 2012 and this is a 2005.  In South Florida, it’s always a losing battle for acidity in whites as they age.  Popping the cork revealed lovely floral notes, and only the faintest hint of crema catalana.  Beautiful tropical tones of pineapple and meyer lemon on the palate.  I love wines with a generous mid-palate, and this has a great one.  The symphony ends with a long, three swallow finish, definitely a wow wine.  This is Steve R Morse with another interesting wine review in beautiful, unusually warm for this time of year Fort Lauderdale.
