MacMurray Ranch Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2014
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Wine AdvocateAs for the 2014 Chardonnay Russian River, this is 100% Chardonnay that was both barrel- and tank-fermented and saw six months in a combination of French and American oak, very little of it new. It went through full malolactic fermentation due to its acid profile. The wine offers up notes of honeyed citrus, orange blossom and pear in a crisp, medium-bodied, relatively fruit-driven style with minimal oak. Drink it over the next several years.
Wine SpectatorSimple yet pleasing, showing rich, direct fig, apricot and white peach flavors, with ample oak shadings. Drink now. 17,100 cases made.
