Background

When La Crema was founded in 1979, the Russian River Valley had yet to establish itself as one of California’s most important regions for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

La Crema’s vineyards are all harvested by hand. The winemaking techniques are primarily traditional to ensure that the wines are true to both the variety and the terroir. The Chardonnays are whole-cluster pressed and fermented and aged in French oak on the lees with bi-monthly battonage to add texture and complexity. The Pinot Noirs are cold soaked for five to eight days before fermentation in small, open-top fermenters and aging in a combination of new and used French oak barrels. As with the Chardonnay, La Crema’s Pinot Noirs are pure, accurate and reflective of their origin.


Tasting Notes

Our boutique, hands-on techniques continued into the winery. Seventy percent whole berries went into open top tank fermentation, with juice cold-soaked for three to five days and carefully hand-punched three times each day – to best extract a luminous, deep ruby colour and velvety texture from the skins. Free run wine was transferred to 100 percent French oak barrels. Ten months of aging helped create our signature smooth flavours.

Reviews

91 points and "Editors' Choice " from Virginie Boone (Wine Enthusiast Magazine):
"This is an impressive wine at the price and production level, a great go-to for multiple occasions. It delivers earthy, candied strawberry around a light, bright core, remaining soft and smooth in texture and intensity, finishing with a tease of milk chocolate."

93 points, Carolyn Hammond (The Toronto Star):
"This trade favourite wine is deeply fruited with a dramatic spectrum of smooth, ripe flavours that flit from cherry and raspberry to dark plum and coffee edged with warm vanilla and a hint of baking spice. It's worth every penny, comes in the half and full bottle sizes and will definitely wow 'em. P.S. The winemaker of this fine wine was born in Niagara Falls - how's that for local flavour?"
