Schug Chardonnay Carneros 2021

Product description
This classic Carneros Chardonnay was grown primarily on the Schug Estate vineyard with additional barrels from the Wildcat Vineyard and Thornton Ranch. It was fermented and aged on the lees (sur-lie) in small French oak barrels, with judicious new oak introduced. Malolactic fermentation was not induced, allowing the wine to retain its natural acidity and varietal focus.

The result is a rich and powerful wine, while refreshing and elegant on the finish. It has a ripe, spicy tropical bouquet with flavours 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.
