2013 Bouchaine Estate Pinot Gris
Pinot Gris, the lightly pigmented cousin of Pinot Noir, is known for its distinctly crisp and bright flavors. This one, from our cool and fog covered estate vineyard, shows citrus, melon, and white nectarine flavors balanced by notable minerality. Bright and refreshing, the liveliness of the wine lends itself to summer dishes enjoyed on the patio.
Bouchaine’s 100-acre estate vineyard lies on the southern border of Napa Valley’s Carneros 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 Pinot Gris.
