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.
From the great estate in the heart of the appellation, this white is richly developed in succulent flavors of pear, pineapple and melon. Balanced acidity boosts the fruit and integrated oak, with touches of nutmeg spice and jasmine that last on the finish.
