Having not posted in a while, I was happy to receive this great California Chardonnay recently. La Crema makes some really nice wines and this one has really straddled the line between the hot climate of California, and slightly cooler climate wines. It’s being released at the LCBO this Saturday, and if you like a full bodied Chard that is not overdone, you should definitely grab this one – it is delicious!
Buttery nose of apple clafoutis (baked apples and pastry), brioche, ripe red apple, vanilla, sweet spice and hints of coconut. On the palate there’s that same clafoutis, lemon curd, and a nice cleansing green apple and lemon pith on the finish. Great balance of sweet fruit and acidity – creating a nice yin & yang. ****, $29.95. At the LCBO on April 1st.
LCBO#: 962886, $29.95.
