Natalie's Score: 91/100

Superb! Classic Californian Chardonnay with toast, oak and green apple on the nose. Full-bodied, and generously layered. Generous flavours of pear and peach on the palate with a long, dry finish and a hint of wild white flowers. Sonoma Coast vineyards enjoy a long, cool growing season due to the moderating influence of the Pacific Ocean, and its fogs and winds that blow inland. This is perfect for slowly ripening grapes to develop complex flavours and nuances without lots of sugar that translates to heavy alcohol. Perfect for roast chicken or mild curries.

Chardonnay food pairings: pasta, hodge podge, lobster with mayonnaise, roasted chicken.

Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

Reviews and Ratings

La Cream (2016) Chardonnay is a consistent crowd-pleaser with its flavours of ripe pear and peach flavours and finishing long with white florals on the palate. The Chardonnay wine grapes are sourced from Sonoma Coast vineyards with varying soil types from clay to loam. Pair with a neighbourhood barbeque and grilled pork chops. - Community Wine Reviews

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
