The 2021 Schug Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is bright and active on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas and flavors of Golden Delicious apples, dried earth, and hints of herbs. Try it with shrimp pasta in a light garlic cream sauce.

Wine Enthusiast 90
Fresh fruits come to the fore in this well-balanced, medium-bodied, no-nonsense wine that was cold-fermented in stainless steel. Light Pippin apple and Bosc pear flavors get a lift from moderate acidity for a cleansing effect on the palate.-WS

This Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is produced without new oak to allow the bright varietal character to shine through. The fruit was harvested from selected vineyards located in the Sonoma Coast AVA, including the cooler microclimates of western Carneros. It has an elegant citrus aroma with hints of grapefruit and white peach. The palate opens with delicate flavors of lemon, apple, and stone fruits and finishes with mouthwatering acidity.
Try it paired with aged cheeses such as Gouda or Manchego or lighter seafood dishes, soups, and pastas.-Winemaker Notes

Founded in 1980, Schug Carneros Estate Winery is the showcase and life-long dream of one of California's most celebrated winemakers. Walter Schug's reputation blossomed during his tenure as Founding Winemaker for Joseph Phelps Vineyards in the 1970s, where he made Californias first proprietary Bordeaux-Style blend (Insignia) and legendary vineyard designated Cabernets (Backus and Eisele Vineyards).
Drawing on his long experience in the production of fine wines in both Europe and California, Walter set up his own winery with his wife Gertrud in the cool, marine climate of the Carneros Appellation. Here he could focus on the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varietals that had always been close to his heart.
Schug Carneros Estate Winery combines old world understanding and tradition with modern winemaking techniques. By using only the finest grapes available, and maintaining the best winemaking values, these wines have gained acceptance worldwide as true contemporary classics.-Winery Notes
About Schug Estate Winery
Founded in 1980, Schug Carneros Estate Winery is the showcase and life-long dream of one of California's most celebrated winemakers, Walter Schug. Family owned and operated, the winery is a reflection of many decades of Schug family involvement in the production of fine wines in Europe and California; both Walter and his wife, Gertrud, came from distinguished winemaking families of Germany.
After creating many of the industry's fine wine benchmarks at Joseph Phelps Vineyards, Walter Schug went on to pursue his life-long passion; the fragile Pinot Noir grape. In order to capture the distinctive character of the finest French Burgundies, he chose the Carneros Appellation for the establishment of a 50 acre Estate vineyard and winery.
Nestled on a hilltop in the midst of their Estate Vineyard in Carneros, the winery exhibits the rich European heritage of the Schug family. The Post and Beam architecture reminiscent of the Rhine River Valley, and underground barrel-aging caves provide a uniquely European setting for the tasting of Schug's fine Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. The experience is enhanced by sweeping views of the Sonoma Valley and the San Francisco Bay.
The unique style of Schug Pinot Noir and Chardonnay captures traditional European values, where wine and food go hand in hand. Schug Carneros Estate Winery combines old world understanding and tradition with the most advanced winemaking technology available today. By using only the finest grapes available in California, and maintaining traditional European winemaking values, these wines have gained acceptance worldwide as true contemporary classics. Today, the Schug legacy is carried on through children; Axel, Claudia and Andrea.
