2017 La Crema Russian River Valley Chardonnay

14.5% alc., pH 3.37, TA 0.58, $30. Gently whole-cluster pressed, barrel fermented in 33% new French oak barrels with occasional lees stirring, and aged 10 months. · Moderately light golden yellow color in the glass. A flamboyant wine with aromas of pineapple, yellow apple and buttery croissant. On the palate there is a rich display of well-ripened citrus and honey flavors with a delicate backing of toasty oak. Soothing in texture with integrated alcohol. Score: 91. Reviewed July 20, 2019
