Winemaker Notes

This well-balanced Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from cool-climate vineyards in the southern end of the Sonoma Coast AVA. The Grossi vineyard north of Petaluma contributes spice and bright, tangy acidity. The Leveroni vineyard south of Sonoma adds the unique floral character of the Sauvignon “musqué” clone. The resulting blend has a bouquet of lemon and grapefruit zest, leading to lush fruit flavors of white peach, passion fruit, and honeydew melon. It finishes with a refreshing minerality and vibrant acidity that makes it an ideal accompaniment to a wide range of soups, salads, and shellfish dishes.

A fruity white with aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, green apple and melon. It’s medium-to full-bodied with tangy acidity and a medium finish. Drink now.

COMMENTARY: The 2020 Schug Sauvignon Blanc offers prototypical attractive characteristics of this grape variety. TASTING NOTES: This wine flourishes with aromas and flavors of dried fig, earth, and tart citrus. Enjoy it with a bowl of steamed clams. (Tasted: September 11, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Tasting Panel

Tart lemon and white grapefruit zing out of the glass, enlightened by tarragon and pea tendrils. Just-ripened pineapple and melon lend more crispness to this fresh, balanced white. Aged 85% in barrel and 15% in stainless steel.

Wine Spectator
Lemon-lime and green apple flavors are vibrant and refreshing, with hints of lemongrass and orange blossom on the finish. Drink now. 1,400 cases made.

Schug, California
Schug Winery Video

Founded in 1980, Schug Carneros Estate Winery is the showcase and life-long dream of one of California's most celebrated winemakers. Walter Schug's reputation blossomed during his tenure as Founding Winemaker for Joseph Phelps Vineyards in the 1970s, where he made California’s first proprietary Bordeaux-Style blend (Insignia) and legendary vineyard designated Cabernets (Backus and Eisele Vineyards).

Drawing on his long experience in the production of fine wines in both Europe and California, Walter set up his own winery with his wife Gertrud in the cool, marine climate of the Carneros Appellation. Here he could focus on the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varietals that had always been close to his heart.

Schug Carneros Estate Winery combines old world understanding and tradition with modern winemaking techniques. By using only the finest grapes available, and maintaining the best winemaking values, these wines have gained acceptance worldwide as true contemporary classics.

Sonoma Coast Wine

Sonoma County, California

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.

Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.

The Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah. The wines have high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and balanced ripeness.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
