90 Points Anthony Gismondi
The wines from La Crema are always some of our most popular California offerings, and there’s no mystery as to why. These are superb wines at great prices. It is made in a style that will have huge appeal to fans of Central Coast Chardonnay. We loved the tension between the rich, ripe fruit and the tangy, citrus-driven acidity.
“Look for an aromatic nose with baked apples and pineapple dusted with butter scented brioche. On the palate, lemon and tangerine pull it all together along with a mineral coating. Balanced, fresh, and ready to drink.”
Dungeness crab or pan-sautéed petrale sole, or any fish and shellfish are ideal with this wine. Cheese like manchego is another fantastic option.
When La Crema was founded in 1979 as La Crema Viñera, meaning the Best of the Vine, the name was intended as an unabashed boast: These vineyards produced the very best grapes in the region. Today, the name has been shortened to mean, simply, the best, and La Crema’s wines represent the best grapes from preeminent cool-climate regions in California and Oregon.
