Winemaker's Notes:

"Rich apple, pear, and citrus aromas dominate the nose, with subtle spice, mineral, and creamy vanilla rounding out the aromas. The flavors follow suit with bright citrus, apple, and peach that linger on the palate. Sweet vanilla is balanced by good acidity that carries all the fruit and complexity into a lingering finish." -JEFF STEWART, LA CREMA WINEMAKER

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.
