The orchestration of different yeasts coupled with sur lie aging in stainless steel tanks as well as French oak barrels of different ages, toast levels, and origins create an array of unique wines. Only the finest wines are combined in late spring into the vibrant final blend, showcasing the best of our estate. You will find layered, lovely aromas of Fuji apple, clementines, kaffir lime, and jasmine. A rich, yet tangy palate showcases flavors of nectarine, lemon curd, and brioche with a long lip-smacking finish. Pair this with a roast chicken, a thick pork chop, or just good friends.
The 2018 Bouchaine Estate Carneros Chardonnay is nicely-built and lasting on the palate. This wine brings classic aromas and flavors of ripe core fruit, sandalwood, savory spices, and oak to the fore. Pair it with pan-fried crab cakes. (Tasted: March 9, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Bright, brisk and satisfying in its punch of fresh fruit, this is simple, luscious and delicious. It’s lemony with lasting peppery spice. For chicken with spaetzle.
