The 2019 La Crema Monterey Chardonnay is a crowd-pleaser. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits pleasing aromas and flavors of ripe fruit, sandalwood, and dried earth. Pair it with an unagi bowl.
Aromas of Meyer lemon, grilled pineapple, and guava are followed by flavors of nectarine, papaya, and lemon-tangerine, with touches of spice and minerality. The balanced acidity lingers on a long finish.

Since 1979, La Crema Winery has been a pioneer in producing Burgundian varietals from the cool Sonoma coast. They handcraft their wine, one barrel at a time, at their family-owned estate located in the Russian River Valley. Balance, finesse and great fruit intensity come through in every glass of La Crema wine.
La Crema's location in the Russian River Valley is ideal for producing wines of uncompromising elegance and balance. To achieve this goal, several unique steps take place in getting fruit from the vineyards to the bottle. It begins in the vineyard, where careful canopy management and hand harvesting assure fully ripe, undamaged grapes are brought to the winery. At the winery, Winemaker Melissa Stackhouse uses artisan winemaking techniques to handcraft wines of distinctive flavor, elegance and balance.
