A wine known for helping to put Monterey Chardonnays on the map, there's a reason this cult favorite is so popular and can be found in some of the best restaurants to your very own refrigerator. Aromas of Meyer lemon, grilled pineapple, and guava are followed by flavors of nectarine, papaya, and lemon-tangerine, with touches of spice and minerality and a nice lingering, long finish.
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.
