Pale lemon with aromas of tropical and citrus fruits adding some blossom notes. On the palate flavors of peach, pineapple and lemon juice with notes if honeysuckle with some acidity zing. Medium finish ending with a citrus mineral spice tang. Tasting Sample.

Buttery and complex, but no depth. The rich, full taste just disappears on your tongue instead of lingering and building. No finish. Quite disappointing for that price.

Nice Chardonnay! I had the Sonoma coast of La Crema before and I have to say this Monterey version is a very satisfying less expensive option. It is very similar on both the nose and palate, the main difference is it has a slightly bitter aftertaste but nothing to worry about. Delicious and great!
