On the nose, Meyer lemon, passionfruit, grilled pineapple, and guava. Nectarine, papaya, and crisp lemon-tangerine notes are complimented by touch of spice and complexing minerality on the palate.

COMMENTARY: The 2020 La Crema Monterey Chardonnay drinks famously well. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits lovely aromas and flavors of savory spices, ripe apples, and peach skin. Pair it with grilled peach halves in a mix of red leaf lettuce and arugula. (Tasted: January 9, 2022, San Francisco, CA)
