Winemaker's Notes:

This wine opens with layered tones of tropical fruit and exotic floral notes mixed with lush butterscotch and spice. On the palate, stone fruit flavors abound, framed by a lovely minerality and subtle nuances of toast and caramel. The broad mouthfeel balances a bright acidity and lingering lemon zest on the finish.

100% Chardonnay

About La Crema:

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.
