The Russian River Valley is one of the most recognized regions in the world for Chardonnay. A diversity in soil types, sharp temperature shifts and heavy fog are all elements encouraging vineyards to produce complex grapes. Luckily for you, La Crema has many vineyards here and they picked their favorite to craft this California classic. Textured, well-balanced and rich, this white wine has aromas and flavors of nectarine, pineapple blossoms, Meyer lemon and crème brûlée.
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.
