La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir: A Taste of California Cool Climate

The General Wine is proud to offer the La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir, a delightful expression of Pinot Noir from California's Central Coast. This wine embodies the characteristics of cool-climate Pinot Noir, showcasing a vibrant acidity, nuanced fruit flavours, and a touch of earthy complexity.

Uncorking the La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir:

  • Colour: Expect a beautiful garnet hue in the glass, hinting at the wine's richness and depth.
  • Aroma: On the nose, a symphony of aromas unfolds. Ripe red fruits like raspberries, plums, and cranberries take centre stage, complemented by hints of baking spice, tobacco leaf, and earthy notes like beetroot and black tea.
  • Palate: The first sip reveals a plush texture, brimming with juicy acidity that keeps the wine lively and refreshing. Flavours of red plum, boysenberry, and pomegranate dance on the tongue, intertwined with subtle earthy notes. Toasty oak spice, integrated seamlessly from barrel ageing, adds a touch of elegance and complexity.

Food Pairing Recommendations:

The La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir's versatility makes it a fantastic partner for a variety of dishes. Here are some suggested food pairings to elevate your dining experience:

  • Hearty Fare: This Pinot Noir can stand up to richer dishes. Try it with roasted duck or chicken with a cherry sauce, grilled lamb chops with rosemary, or hearty mushroom risotto.
  • Italian Delights: Explore Italian cuisine with the La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir. Pair it with classic pasta dishes like sausage ragu or creamy tomato sauce variations. Pizzas with robust toppings like pepperoni or roasted vegetables are another excellent match.
  • Cheese Platter: Let the La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir complement a selection of cheeses. Opt for creamy cheeses like Brie or Camembert, semi-hard cheeses like Gruyere or Gouda, or even a touch of blue cheese for a contrasting bite.

Beyond the Bottle: The La Crema Story

La Crema, a family-owned winery, is renowned for its focus on cool-climate appellations. The Monterey AVA, with its rocky, windswept vineyards and longer growing season due to cooler temperatures, provides ideal conditions for Pinot Noir grapes to thrive. Winemaker Craig McAllister skilfully combines Burgundian techniques with a contemporary Californian approach, resulting in a wine that is both elegant and expressive.

In Conclusion:

The La Crema Monterey Pinot Noir is an exceptional choice for Pinot Noir lovers seeking a well-rounded and flavourful experience. Its vibrant acidity, enticing fruit notes, and subtle earthy complexity make it a versatile food pairing companion. Whether you're enjoying a weeknight meal or a special occasion, this California Pinot Noir is sure to impress.
