25th April, 2013 by Andy Young

Charles Krug Sauvignon Blanc, St. Helena-Napa Valley 2012

Charles KrugSandra Silfven recommends this white wine in the Detroit News, she wrote; “Charles Krug is the first winery established in Napa Valley — in 1861 — and since 1943 has been in the hands of the Mondavi family. Owner Peter Mondavi, brother of the late Robert Mondavi, will turn 99 during the 2013 harvest. He still goes to work every day.”

Of this wine she added: “Imagine what you get when you mix together citrus, grapefruit and melon: Tart! Crisp! Dry! Throw in passionfruit, lime and orange blossom and you have the 2012 vintage of this iconic Sauvignon Blanc. What a fine wine for seafood.”
