J Vin Gris Russian River Valley 2008
Whole grape clusters were hand-harvested and pressed gently in J's uniquely gentle Coquard press, which minimizes extraction of harsh components from the skins and seeds. Each vineyard is fermented on its own, often broken into multiple lots, using a variety of yeast. The juice is kept in 100% stainless steel, is fermented slowly at cool temperatures, and undergoes no malolactic fermentation. This preserves the integrity of the fruit allowing full expression of each vineyard.
Crisp fresh apple and pear tart. Very nice! - Tasted at winery Feb 2011
This is a light and fruit forward wine that has enough depth to compliment a number of chicken, light pork and white seafood dishes. By itself, it's crispiness makes it a hit on a warm day. We like it because it seems to bridge Fume and Grigio drinkers - a great selection for a social gathering!
