The Creamery Chardonnay 2019

With a name like The Creamery, it should come as no surprise that this is a lusciously rich Chardonnay. If you’re a fan of the style, you’re in for a real treat …

The Creamery hails from the Santa Lucia Highlands, one of California’s premier cool-climate regions that “produces a stack load of brilliant Chardonnays,” writes The Wine Advocate. Here, mountainside vineyards (some planted up to 1,200 feet above sea level) provide grapes with bright sunshine, while the nearby Monterey Bay sends in cooling fog and sea breezes. And thanks to the fantastic 2019 vintage, these conditions were at their apex, producing perfectly ripe and fresh Chardonnay.

Look forward to vibrant aromas of apricot, white peach, and soft honeysuckle. Light barrel aging (combined with the secondary, malolactic fermentation) adds flavors of honey, toast, and vanilla biscuit, along with a creamy-smooth texture. It’ll make a tasty match for equally creamy cheeses or pasta dishes.
