La Crema Monterey Chardonnay 2019
A lovely, crisp Chardonnay from one of California's cooler regions.
On the nose there is plenty of lemon, passionfruit, pineapple and a note of pie crust. On the palate it is full of nectarine, tropical papaya and crisp lemon-tangerine notes, complemented by a touch of vanilla spice and a complex minerality.
La Crema was founded in 1979 and quickly established itself as a pioneer for intensely flavoured Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from cooler climates. This wine comes from Monterey; this long valley stretches south through farmland and rolling hills, always buffeted by the cold winds that sweep in off the Pacific Ocean, making for one of the coolest growing regions in California.
