La Crema Monterey Chardonnay 2018
Wonderful Chardonnay, crisp and lively, a bit oaky. Medium golden hue, nose of yellow apple, opens with pear and lemon peel, middle is creamy, finish has mild vanilla, pineapple and nutmeg.
In 2018, Monterey saw a return to a more traditional coastal California growing season. Cool winter and spring temperatures extended the timing of bloom. Fruit set well, and we avoided frost conditions that kept our vineyard managers on watch in the South through late Spring. Summer was cool and mild with minimal heat spikes which provided the grapes with ample time to develop rich and concentrated flavors. Our Monterey Chardonnay harvest began on October 7th when flavors, acids, and sugars were in perfect harmony.
