Winery Rhyme

Wine doesn't need to be intimidatingly complex. That's why, for this Macrae Russian River Chardonnay, we've taken up a method from our childhood to describe it.

Old Macraenald had a winery
E-I-E-I-O
And in his winery he had a 2006 Chardonnay
E-I-E-I-O
With a creamy pear here
And a floral note there
Here a pear, there a note
Everywhere a pear and note
Old Macraenald had a winery
E-I-E-I-O

Old Macraenald had a winery
E-I-E-I-O
And in his winery he had a 2008 Chardonnay
E-I-E-I-O
With a baked apple here
And a pear flavor there
Here an apple, there a pear
Everywhere a pear and apple
Old Macraenald had a winery
E-I-E-I-O.

Features

2006 Macrae Russian River Chardonnay, Bacigalupi Vineyard 750ml 2-Pack

Elegant and refined, this fruit provides the perfect venue for showcasing the Russian terroir.  The 2006 vintage offered international winemaker Kerry Damskey grapes that hinted of their old world pedigree.  Not over blown and pretentiously bold, this wine gives the refined impressions of mineral, creamy pears and summer garden floral notes.  This wine does not swagger; instead it gives the imbiber a perfectly balanced and refined wine experience.  A signature wine, the voluminous of the middle palate is bright owing to a wonderful Russian River Valley acidity.  A long sustainable and luscious finish.


2008 Macrae Russian River Chardonnay, Bacigalupi Vineyard 750ml 2-Pack

In 2008 the encounter between the terroirs of the Russian River Valley and the blessing of a perfect growing season was nothing less than magical for a handful of Chardonnay producers.  Such was the case for the Macrae Family Winery.  Pale gold in color, this wine exhibits hints of baked apple and pear.  Very crisp and with just the right amount of acidity.  Lush, soft and round on the finish.
