Winemaker's Notes

The 2004 vintage marks our first ever national release of Bouchaine Estate Chardonnay. This wine comes from vines dating to Bouchaine's original plantings in 1981, growing on our windswept Napa Valley Carneros hillsides. It is a true expression of Chardonnay--bright, citrusy flavors graced with only the merest hint of oak. Its bright acidity, notable texture (a hallmark characteristic of Carneros Chardonnay), and relentless finish harmonize in an elegant, stylish wine. Straw gold in color, it dances in the glass like sunlight. For anyone searching beyond overly-oaked Chardonnays, this one will surely delight and satisfy.

FOOD PAIRING
This Chardonnay loves food as much as you do. Seafood items such as fresh fish, scallops, and shrimp will truly shine when paired with this wine. Try it also with crab cakes with a red bell pepper sauce or chicken marinated in a soy-ginger dressing, and anything with citrus flavors.
