About Our Ratings

La Crema 2011 Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast
La Crema Winery has been producing outstanding Chardonnay from the cool Sonoma coast area since 1979. Grapes for this release were selected from cool vineyard sites within the Sonoma Coast boundaries. A variety of clones were selected to achieve rich layers and complex, intense aromatics in the glass, including Clone 4, Dijon, Robert Young, 809, Rued and Wente. To avoid damage to the clusters, fruit was picked in the coolest parts of the day and delivered to the winery in small, half-ton bins. The fruit was carefully sorted before pressing; hand-picked lots were immediately whole cluster pressed. After all the fruit was pressed and settled overnight, the juice was racked. 95% was then barrel fermented in French oak for while 5% was fermented in stainless steel. Full malolactic fermentation is done for a round rich character. The lees were stirred every three to four weeks for 6 months adding layers of spice, texture and vanilla. Interbational Wine Cellar scored this 90 points saying "Bright gold. Spicy citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complemented by notes of ginger and honeysuckle. Shows very good focus and tension on the palate, offering lively pear and tangerine flavors and a touch of anise. Finishes bright and energetic, leaving a refreshingly bitter citrus zest note behind. Quite grown-up in style for a large production wine."
