We crafted this Chardonnay from select vineyards located in the Sonoma Coast appellation, including the microclimates of western Carneros, southern Sonoma Valley and the Petaluma Gap. Produced in a lively, crisp style that emphasizes varietal character without the use of new oak, it has a spicy citrus bouquet that leads to juicy flavors of white peach and nectarine, followed by a sleek, juicy finish. Try it as an elegant aperitif paired with hors d'oeuvres, or with lighter dishes such as soups, salads, seafood and pasta dishes.
"A wonderfully drinkable Chardonnay that shows brilliant coastal character and lots of richness, at a decent price. Crisp and dry, it has elaborate flavors of pineapples, green apples,
peaches, crème brûlée, buttered toast, vanilla and

solid chardonnay. A clear winner.
I sampled this Schug at our San Francisco headquarters before we brought this in and enjoyed it. It's a likeable wine and takes the middle road as far as chardonnay goes. Cirtrusy and tart in all the right places. This is not an oak bomb or fruit bomb if that's what you're are searching for.
