La Crema Monterrey
- April 8, 2019
Bright citrus, apricot, and honeydew scents. Yellow plum, tropical fruit, crisp apple, and baking spice flavors. A rich mouthfeel plus juicy acidity.
Monterey has one of the longest, coolest growing seasons in California—and 2014 was especially so. As a result of a mild winter and a warm Spring, harvest began roughly two weeks earlier than normal. Throughout harvest, the weather cooperated beautifully, allowing the grapes ample sunshine to achieve optimal ripeness and avor development, while cooling breezes helped to maintain the vibrant acidity.
Dungeness crab or pan-sautéed petrale sole, or any fish and shellfish are ideal with this wine. Cheese like manchego is another fantastic option.
