Spicy tropical bouquet with a crisp, clean finish

This classic Carneros Chardonnay was grown on our own cool-climate Estate vineyard, as well as the Ricci, Cornerstone, Hi-Vista, Sangiacomo and Iund Vineyards. It was barrel 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.

Walter Schug was intimately familiar with the Carneros region, and its potential as world-class Pinot Noir country, long before he staked his reputation on it. In the 1960’s he worked with Carneros grapegrowers as Gallo’s Head of Grower Relations. In the 1970’s and 1980’s he pro- duced wine from Carneros as winemaker at Joseph Phelps Vineyards. In 1983, Walter’s commit- ment to the young region’s potential was fully demonstrated when he left Phelps to pursue his own vision of Pinot Noir, using Carneros as the foundation for his own brand.
