Winemaker's Notes
This classic Carneros Chardonnay was grown primarily on the Schug Estate vineyard, with additional barrels from our grower-partners Ricci, Wildcat, Leveroni, Wood Valley and Iund Vineyards. It was 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.


Critical Acclaim
Vintage 2017 - Wine Enthusiast -  89 points
"Tasting of lemon candy and tart apple, this wine offers plenty of focused acidity beneath its textured concentration of prominent oak. The midpalate settles into a balance between the two sides of the equation, finishing juicy and lush."
