External Reviews for Schug Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma Coast
This well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of vineyards from very different microclimates in Sonoma County. Grapes grown in the cooler Carneros district contribute spice and acidity for excellent food compatibility while the warmer-grown Bennett Valley grapes Sauvignon Musque contribute lush fruit flavors reminiscent of melon honeysuckle and grapefruit. These flavors are enhanced by the creamy richness of fermentation and aging on the yeast ("sur lie"). This wine finishes with a clean crisp acidity that makes it an ideal accompaniment to a wide range of soups salads and shellfish dishes.
