Schug Chardonnay 2022, 750ml, Carneros, California

This Chardonnay features grapes sourced primarily from the Ricci Vineyard and Schug’s Estate
vineyard, with additional barrels from the Wildcat Mountain and Sangiacomo vineyards that underwent traditional European winemaking practices. Each lot was fermented separately and aged on the lees (“sur-lie”) in small French Oak barrels, with judicious new oak introduced. The resulting wine showcases intense aromas of lemon, white flowers, and nectarine. On the palate, the texture is
rich in tropical and stone fruit flavors and a light minerality leading to a refreshing and mouth
watering finish. Well-balanced acidity gives it a crisp, clean finish, making it an excellent wine
with food.
