Since the mid 1990's La Crema has become synonymous with high quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir hailing from Sonoma County. In pursuit of exploring the cool-climate regions of California, La Crema moved up the coast to a remote part of Northern California for this stunning Chardonnay. This wine combines beautiful savory herbaciousness of verbena, lemon thyme and sage with juicy fruit notes of ripe citrus, white peach, and green apple.
About La Crema
The original name, La Crema Viñera, means “best of the vine,” setting the standard for this winery since 1979. From their home in the Russian River Valley, the best cool-climate growing regions in California are explored through the lens of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Here, the ocean winds and fog allow grapes to ripen slowly on the vine, developing complex flavors and aromas. Winemaker Craig McAllister utilizes boutique, time-intensive techniques to craft distinctively balanced and elegant wines.
