"The 2006 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay bursts with enticing aromas of citrus, floral notes, butterscotch, lemon
peel and a slight spicy quality. In the mouth, flavors of citrus, pear and honeysuckle combine with subtle
toast and caramel, adding richness and texture to the long, lingering finish."
- Melissa Stackhouse, Winemaker
A Wine this good, makes me wonder what some other people are doing with all their carefully selected chardonnay fruit. In the case of Melissa Stackhouse at La Crema, she is keeping it brisk and clean. The vineyard sites are all located within 25 miles of the coast and the freshness of this wine, the flavors of pear and peach skin, give it a zest that feels true to that coastal influence. It's layered and cool, a luscious wine for crab. But it by the case.
