Charles Krug Winery Carneros Chardonnay 2019 Review

Charles Krug was the United States' first real winemaking consultant in the 19th century. He was an integral part of the development of the wine industry of Sonoma, which would then work its way into the Napa Valley. The winery is still making wine today and Charles would be proud of this Chardonnay. It’s extremely affordable and has an easy fruit forward nose with a nice hint of saline (salt) that brightens the senses. The palate is clean and crisp with, not a big dollop of oak, but a good balance between wood, fruit and acidity. This is a great wine to have laying around for a lazy weekend with friends.
