Food Pairings for Charles Krug Napa Sauvignon Blanc
Grapefruit and pears. Definitely a New Zealand influence. As another reviewer said, this goes great with grilled chicken. Mine was marinated in teriyaki sauce. Perfect pairing.

Expect floral, peach flavors in this light wine with mild minerality and acidity. Pairs with grilled chicken with herbs and a hot mustard sauce, or cedar planked salmon with honey mustard.
Sampled this wine at a wine tasting at the Ridge Tahoe in Stateline, NV. I enjoyed this wine, although it wasn't a standout among the other selections. It had a nice, sweet-tart quality and was recommended to pair with white meat and seafood.
Great white wine with a bit of bite.
External Reviews for Charles Krug Napa Sauvignon Blanc
The 2008 growing season saw widespread frost damage and challenging summer conditions which reduced yields and produced a lighter-than-average vintage. A dry spring and a lengthy late April frost, the coldest in more than three decades, were followed by three odd heat waves before mid-July, rain in some places, and high winds - all during the critical bloom period. As a result, grapes were smaller, but more concentrated. Despite a crazy weather year, wines produced in this season were well-structured, elegant, and full of flavor.
Our signature style Sauvignon Blanc preserves the vibrant flavors found in the fruit from the night it was harvested through the time this bottle is opened. Through delicate fruit handling and the use of stainless steel tanks, the aromas and flavors of guava, grapefruit and melon flavors shine through. - Winery
