Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Chardonnay from La Crema is impressive. It opens with a lemon custard and mild oak bouquet with notes of pineapple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, round and smooth. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused pineapple with notes of Anjou pear and oak. I also detected hints of apricot and a dash of white pepper towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. I would pair this very nicely Chard with pan seared sea scallops drizzled with herb butter. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: On the nose, delicate notes of lychee, citrus blossom, and toasted hazelnut followed by flavors of gravenstein apple, Meyer lemon, and baked pear. On the palate, the 2017 vintage presents bright acidity and a long-refined finish.
