Like Rapunzel spinning straw into gold, this Chardonnay from La Crema can’t help but impress. Lemon custard and mild oak mingle on the nose with notes of pineapple. The medium-bodied, balanced palate is round and smooth, delivering mouth-filling flavors of pineapple and baked pear, laced with mineral and buttery oak. Settle into this beauty with a plate of pan-seared sea scallops and call it a perfect day.

Wine Advocate

The 2017 Chardonnay Saralee’s Vineyard was barrel fermented and aged 10 months in 32% new French oak. It opens with white peach, lilac, baked golden apple, apricot, sweet spices and honey toast with loads of savory accents. Medium-bodied, it’s rounded, silky and intense with mouthwatering freshness and a long, toasty finish.
