A medium-plus-bodied California Chardonnay with ripe peach, apple dumpling, buttery with nutmeg, allspice and toasty oak spice flavours smooth on the palate. Zesty finish with good acidity for food. Chill and enjoy now and for the next three years.

Reviews and Ratings

A vibrant Chardonnay from the Sonoma Coast, California, Macrostie 2016 is yeasty and floral on the nose and has bright, fresh apple, white stone-fruit, vanilla and apple pie spice flavours on the palate. Some toasty oak rounds off the Chardonnay. Nicely done. Enjoy now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
