Schug - Chardonnay - 2020
Sonoma Coast, California
Wine Makers Notes: This classic Carneros Chardonnay was grown primarily on the Schug Estate vineyard, with additional barrels from our grower-partners Ricci, Wildcat, and Iund Vineyards. It was fermented and aged on the lees (“sur-lie”) in small French oak barrels, with judicious 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.
**Each wine is priced for retail/takeout only. If you decide to enjoy your wine at Blue Door when you pick up your order an additional wine service charge of $15 will be applicable!**
