La Crema has dedicated more than 30 years to exploring the many expressions of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from California and Oregon’s finest winegrowing regions. They produce several Chardonnay's from unique appellations, this one is from Monterey County, an 'old school' area for good Chardonnay. On the nose, look for tangerine, grilled pineapple and vanilla. On the palate, peach, papaya and crisp tangerine notes are complemented by a touch of spice and buttery oak. Balanced acidity lingers on the ­finish. Pair with tortellini with pancetta and peas, fried chicken, lobster rolls and creamy cheeses such as Delice de Bourgogne and Fromage d'Affinois.

Wine EnthusiastThis widely available wine is compelling on many fronts. Strong aromas of Key lime pie, Anjou pear, grapefruit pith, chalk and buttercream lead into a generous palate of white peach and smoked nectarine. It's rich but balanced.

Jeb DunnuckBrought up mostly in barrel (10% was in tank), the 2018 Chardonnay Monterey offers lots of honeyed melon and tropical notes as well as a medium-bodied, juicy, nicely balanced style on the palate. It's another good value from this estate.
