« Prev Next » 5 of 8
Average price: $22.99 from 52 stores
With a nose slightly marked by barrel fermentation aromas this remains impressively dry and savory, filled with notes of hay and lightly toasted oatmeal framing very pretty pear and crab apple fruit. With lovely purity and freshness on the palate, this combines super bright acids with lovely old wood textural notes yielding a wine that features super ripe fruit that reveals the cool climate nature of the vintage with it’s tart pineapple, lime and and pear flavors. Just so clear and pure on the palate, this is California ripe but with etched structure, and a long, tense finish that gain a fine almond note on the finale. Very much in my wheelhouse! 93pts

  • 1298842Jerry Airheart I've tasted the La Crema Chardonnay and they are excellent choices.


  • 1061054MrClogg Though it is not a California Chardonnay, I'd would like to give credit to an incredibly good Chardonnay from New York's Benmarl winery, in the Hudson Valley. Their 2011 Apis Chardonnay, which underwent a brief maceration and minimal oak, creates a rich, full bodied cool climate Chardonnay comparable to a lot of the great Californian chardonnays.
