Bouchaine Estate Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
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.
Mouth-filling fruit and spice flavors are well matched by vibrant acidity in this ripe but racy wine. Lemons, green apples and hints of butter and toast create complexity while retaining a refreshing, appetizing quality.
Lip-smacking, with juicy and generous lemon curd, tangerine and Key lime pie flavors, backed by fleshy ripe melon and lemon blossom accents that show a touch of brioche and sea salt on the finish. Drink now. 2,800 cases made.
