90 points Wine Enthusiast:"A wonderfully drinkable Chardonnay that shows brilliant coastal character and lots of richness, at a decent price. Crisp and dry, it has elaborate flavors of pineapples, green apples, peaches, creme brulee, buttered toast, vanilla and cinnamon spice." (07/10) Schug Chardonnay is always produced in a lively, crisp style that emphasizes varietal fruit character. This is achieved in part by combining modern cold fermentation with traditional French Burgundian aging techniques and in part from the estate's very cool-climate Carneros vineyards. Full of structure and complexity, this stands out from the crowd.
