MacRostie Winery and Vineyards Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2018, California

Light yellow in color with a golden tint.

Nose of citrus, lemons, apples, spices, toasted oak, light vegetables and earth.

Medium bodied with medium acidity and smooth.

Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, citrus, green apples, river rocks, bitter herbs, spices, black pepper and light oak.

Spicy finish with limes.

This is a very nice Chardonnay from Russian River Valley. Spicy and interesting. Nicely balanced and elegant, with soft earth notes.

Good right out of the bottle, and gets more complex as it opens up.

A little high in alcohol, but not noticeable at all. Good by itself and with food.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses by the lake.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

89 points.
