La Crema Chardonnay
Sonoma Coast Chardonnay opens with an intriguing interplay of lively citrus and subtle toasted oak, laced with just a kiss of butterscotch. The palate is round and nutty, with flavors of yellow apple and orange adding lushness, while well-balanced acidity creates a lovely vibrancy." - Melissa Stackhouse, La Crema Winemaker The Place: Sonoma County Like the Burgundy wine region of France, the vineyards of Sonoma Coast offer an unusually long, cool and steady growing season. Lingering fog and wind from the nearby Pacific Ocean and moderate temperatures throughout the growing season contribute to the slow ripening process. With an extended "hang" time on the vines, the results are small berries with firm acidity and highly concentrated aromas and flavors.
