Natalie's Score: 88/100

La Crema 2018 Chardonnay is a classic, cool climate Chard from the Monterey wine region in California. Always enjoyable with this vintage delivering concentrated ripe pear, peach, pink grapefruit, buttered pastry, creamy, smoky and rich on the palate. Although, there are a lot of warm, sunny days in Monterey moderating cool ocean influences allow the Chardonnay wine grapes to ripen evenly and completely. Pour with grilled lobster tails and a lemon butter sauce.

Chardonnay food pairings: lobster in butter sauce, spinach and pepper jack stuffed chicken, toasted ravioli served with Alfredo sauce.
