Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from La Crema opens with a mild oak and pear like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced and a little viscous. The flavor profile is a pleasant mild green apple with gentle hints of minerality, faint oak, Anjou pear and a touch of nutmeg. The finish is dry and its flavors and nicely integrated acidity drift away nicely. This Chard is going to be a real crowd pleaser and perfect glass pour option for restaurants. It is food friendly and versatile. I would pair it with trout almondine. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This wine opens with layered aromas of fresh Meyer lemon, shortbread and ripe pear. On the palate are flavors of baked, locally grown, Gravenstein apple framed by hints of sweet spice and white peach. The end result is a broad, juicy, and beautifully balanced mouthfeel.
