Schug's 2016 Carneros Chardonnay comes primarily from the Schug Estate vineyard, with some additional barrels from the winery's grower partners at Ricci, Wildcat Mountain, Iund, Wood Valley and Leveroni. This classic Chardonnay 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, and beautifully balanced acidity that gives it a crisp, clean finish. This Chardonnay is excellent paired with food, especially cream soups, rich seafood, veal and pasta dishes.
