La Crema Chardonnay Monterey 2013

La Crema Chardonnay Monterey 2013

Sku: 041464

Tasting notes
This wineopens with layered aromas of jasmine, tropical fruit, fresh white peach and ripe citrus. On the palate, flavors of melon and ripe pear take center stage, framed by hints of mango, vanilla custard and wet river stone. A broad mouthfeel beautifully balances the juicy acidity.
- Elizabeth Grant-Douglas, Winemaker

Centered on a rich, full core of fig and honeydew flavors, with a touch of citrus skin pithiness that offers a hint of sage. Drink now. -JL

Wine maker notes
The vineyards of Monterey are defined by persistent ocean winds that are funneled down a 90-mile-long valley that runs north to south between the Santa Lucia and Gabilan Mountains. These strong winds combine with abundant sun and scarce rainfall to give this wine region one of the longest, coolest growing seasons in California. The coolest vineyards are at the northernmost tip of the valley, where Chardonnay develops remarkable aromatic and textural complexity with crisp, firm structural elements. A variety of clones - Clone 4, Dijon and Rued - were chosen for this release to emphasize Monterey Chardonnay’s natural complexity and intense aromatics.
