Macari Vineyards Early Wine Chardonnay 2009
This 100% Chardonnay from Macari Vineyards in Mattituck, NY, on the North Fork of Long Island, is an attractive combination of apple and citrus.
Pale straw colors reflect fresh warm-weather aromas of Granny Smith apples, lemon rinds, and lime, accompanied by flavors of kiwi, pineapple and green plum. The finish is nicely balanced and shines with a lively acidity that creates a great pairing with sushi. $16.99 and 12% alcohol.
Full Disclosure: This sample bottle was given to vignauvavino compliments of Macari Vineyards.
