Winemaker's Notes

The 1998 Krug Chardonnay is a lovely straw-gold wine with bright tightly focused aromas of apple and pear. Honey-vanilla oak pairs with crisp, clean citrus flavors to harmoniously fill the palate. The myriad of flavors lingers on the palate as they softly flow to a supple finish. Its balance and structure enhances a wide variety of foods, however, its ample fruit and oak are a delight on their own.

Food Pairings: The Charles Krug 1998 Napa Valley Chardonnay is a versatile wine with compliments a wide range of foods such as roast poultry and pork, rich cheeses, and pasta with cream sauces.
