Schug Carneros Chardonnay 2015


SKU 19737


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.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Carneros Chardonnay offers subtle grapefruit, nectarines and fresh hay on the nose with a hint of lemon peel. Medium-bodied, it has a lovely silkiness to the texture and a good concentration of fresh, youthful citrus fruit, finishing with a savory/yeastiness.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine is sourced from a handful of sites in the appellation, combining tropical, fleshy pineapple and vanilla with a lush texture and body. As it develops in the glass, its concentration is further accented in a taste of baked pear.
