Marcassin Three Sisters Chardonnay 2000
Marcassin is an exceptionally small boutique winery owned and run by one of the most influential and acclaimed winemakers in California, Helen Turley. The Three Sisters Vineyard is owned by the Martinelli family is no longer a cuvée made by Marcassin (final vintage in 2008). The 2000 release is now fully mature, exuding wonderful notes of lemon rind, dried apricot, baked apple, butter, lanolin, slight smokiness and spices. An up-front style of Chardonnay but it is rather delicious!
