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.
