Lots of lightly baked green apple fruit topped with bright lime zest notes along with hints of old wood, and subtle hints of toast, vanilla and minerals. Round and rather rich in the mouth, with lots of citrus and green stone fruits but at the same time this have great acidity contributing plenty of snap in the mouth. The oak is almost fully integrated, adding a hint of spice to the rather rich and well fruited finish. A nice blend of Californian fruit with an old world sensibility. 89pts


User Reviews for Schug Chardonnay Carneros

Winemaker's Notes:

This classic Carneros Chardonnay was grown on our own cool-climate Estate vineyard, as well as the Ricci, Cornerstone, Hi-Vista, Sangiacomo and Iund Vineyards. It was barrel fermented and aged on the lees (“sur-lie”) in small French oak barrels, with minimal new oak introduced. Malo-lactic fermentation was not induced, allowing the wine to retain its natural acidity and varietal focus. The result is a wine that is both rich and powerful, while refreshing and elegant on the finish. It has a ripe, spicy tropical bouquet with flavors that suggest citrus, pear and spiced apples. Well-balanced acidity gives it a crisp, clean finish, making it an excellent wine with food. Try it with cream soups, rich seafood, fowl, veal and pasta dishes.
