2013 Bouchaine Estate Chêne d'Argent
Tank fermented – this wine sees no time in oak barrels. Fermenting in tank preserves the bright nectarine, meyer lemon, and pomelo aromas. Tangy clean citrus and stone fruit flavors dominate the palate delivering a refreshing example of pure Chardonnay character. Pairs wonderfully with any of your favorite seafood dishes, from grilled shrimp to oysters.
Bouchaine’s 100-acre estate vineyard lies on the southern border of Napa Valley’s Carne-ros district, overlooking the Napa-Sonoma Marsh State Wildlife Area, with San Francisco and the bay in the distance. Fog, wind, and the cold night time temperatures of this unique geographical area lend distinctive regional identity to Chardonnay.
