Review: 2021 Charles Krug Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley
We last saw this wine in its 2019 incarnation. Today Krug’s sauvignon blanc is still showcasing notes of peach and a light lemon curd undertone, though its grassy elements seem elusive now. A fresh pineapple note adds a tropical kick, and while there’s the vaguest hint of ammonia late in the game, Krug has wedged enough fruit into the mix here to keep it at bay. Lightly sweet on the finish, a more brooding guava note gives the conclusion a welcome touch of restraint.
