Mission Codename Classic Elegance
Today’s La Crema 2012 Appellation Series Russian River Valley Chardonnay comes from La Crema’s Appellation Series, meaning that only the best fruit made it into this wine. The final product was crafted to be a perfect representation of Russian River Valley Chardonnay, and we absolutely agree with this sentiment.
Incredibly well balanced, with a seamless integration of fruit, earth, and spice, this Chardonnay is a cut above the your typical white wine. In fact, we would go so far as to say this wine is exactly what should come to mind when thinking of California Chardonnay. Lush fruit notes of pear and green apple form a delicate interplay with honeycomb, soft baking spices, and a touch of fresh herbs, resulting in an incredibly delicious wine.
Robert Parker awarded this wine 92 Points, and at 22% off, this is one wine to stock up on for the coming warmer months!
