La Crema Chardonnay 2018 750mL WS WW89 Points - Wilfred Wong
Aromas of meyer lemon, gala apple and subtle hints of OAK are followed by flavors of white stone fruit, yellow plum and honeydew melon. On the palate, the wine is vibrant and concentrated with juicy acidity that drives a lingering finish.
A lithe resinous aspect accents the Gala apple and lemon curd flavors, tied together by fresh acidity. The crisp, spicy finish features creamy details, with hints of anise. Drink now through 2024.

COMMENTARY: La Crema is one of the most consistent producers of excellent value Sonoma Coast Chardonnays. The 2018 vintage is spot-on. TASTING NOTES: This wine is bright and frisky. Enjoy its aromas and flavors of tart citrus and dried earth with a lightly-dressed Dungeness crab salad. Make sure the dressing is light. (Tasted: December 13, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
