2014 Bouchaine Carneros Las Brisas Vineyard Riesling
Riesling is among the rarest of grape varieties planted in Carneros. We purchase a scant 1 acre block in the 110 acre Las Brisas Vineyard. Las Brisas lies on a gentle, west-facing slope in the heart of Carneros. The vineyard is often covered in fog until noon or later when a cool breeze blows in from the Pacific Ocean and San Pablo Bay. Carneros is among the most suitable sites in all of California for this noble variety that originated on the frigid slopes of the German river valleys.
