La Crema Saralees Chardonnay 2016
La Crema Vinera, means “best of the vine,” setting the standard for all they do since 1979. This family-owned and operated winery focuses exclusively on cool-climate appellations. They’re continually exploring these very special regions — passionate in their belief that they make uniquely expressive and elegant wines.
At the heart of the Russian River Valley, sits a majestic vineyard honouring the late Saralee Kunde, one of the region’s most beloved and respected winegrowing visionaries. Awash with rustic charm, the 200-acre vineyard features a variety of Chardonnay clones on a diverse spectrum of rootstocks as well as eight different soil types – mostly sandy/gravelly, or clay loams. This complex vineyard dotted with ower gardens and oak groves produce truly spectacular fruit.

The Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Chardonnay Saralee’s Vineyard reveals lemon meringue pie, applesauce and quince notes with touches of allspice lightly browned toast and honeycomb. Full-bodied, rich and seductive in the mouth, it packs in the apple and citrus pie flavours with a gorgeous creaminess to the texture and a very long, honeyed finish. 1,500 cases were produced."
