A genuinely sophisticated wine, the Macauley 2019 Bacigalupi Vineyard Chardonnay exudes all the extraordinary personalities of an Old World white Burgundy. On the nose, this Chardonnay offers subtle perfumes of candle wax, powdered sugar, and white flowers with hints of honey and citrus. It really shows its Old World character in its underlying notes of matchbook, wet stone, and the sliver of French oak from the oak aging. The palate is bursting with savory and zesty fruit qualities, all in beautiful balance with electrifying acidity. In keeping with its Old World roots, this is a stunningly bright expression for California, without a trace of butter or vanilla that one would expect from a typical Sonoma Chardonnay. Enjoy!
