La Crema Chardonnay 2007

La Crema, Sonoma Coast, Chardonnay 2007 In the nose there’s a sense of biscuits, croissants and other freshly baked doughy things with hints of oak and vanilla. In the mouth this wine is rich with oak yet the apples and pears come through, showing a sensible balance of the grape and the art of the winemaker. It’s a wine that’s fresh yet rich at the same time – super. 90% of the wine was fermented in barrel and 90% went through malolactic. The wine was aged on the lees and treated to battonage for 7 months in primarily French oak, 25% of which was new. Winemaker Melissa Stackhouse.
