charles krug chardonnay
Aromas of lemon blossom and tangerine with a light touch of vanilla segue into flavors of white peach and juicy tropical fruit. Light French oak nuances complement a smooth, creamy, vanilla finish in this medium-bodied wine. It is sure to pair well with lobster and poached salmon.
This wine was half barrel-fermented, with just 25% of it new and French oak. It benefits from this treatment, offering fruit that leans toward Meyer lemon, melon and a vaguely tropical vibe, remaining balanced throughout, but especially on the finish.
