La Crema 2013 Monterey Pinot Gris displays lemon and melon flavors with a generous minerality


La Crema 2013 Monterey Pinot Gris
Monterey, California

Grown along the cool, windswept hillsides of Monterey, the long cool-climate season allows La Crema's wines to mature slowly and gather natural acidity. Aromas of lemon and honey immediately burst out of the juicy 2013 Pinot Gris, followed closely by subtler notes of pear and spice. The well-balanced palate displays melon and lemon with a mineral undertone and crisp finish.

Catch of the Day:
Fresh salmon tartare with a squeeze of lemon pairs beautifully with this Pinot Gris.

Rating: 13.5/20
