- 100% Chardonnay
This classic Carneros Chardonnay was grown primarily on the Schug Estate vineyard, with additional barrels from grower-partners Ricci, Wildcat, Leveroni, Wood Valley and Iund Vineyards.
It was 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.
