La Crema Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
This wine opens with layered aromas of vanilla, yellow plum, fresh peach blossom and ripe citrus. On the palate are flavors of locally grown Gravenstein apple framed by hints of sweet spice and shortbread. The end result is a broad, juicy, and beautifully balanced mouthfeel.
A lithe resinous aspect accents the Gala apple and lemon curd flavors, tied together by fresh acidity. The crisp, spicy finish features creamy details, with hints of anise. Drink now through 2024. 100,000 cases made.
Concentrated pear flavor and generous oak combine for an approachable, easygoing experience of varietal character in this likable, well-distributed wine. Melon, peach and Meyer lemon add to the fruitiness and balanced weight, the grapes from several vineyard-designated sites.
