J Vin Gris Russian River Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The J Vineyards Vin Gris was made by using the French saignée method. After the cold soak, 10% of the pinot noir juice was gently “bled” from the Pinot Noir tanks before the fermentations begin. The drained juice was then fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures without the tannic influence of the skins and seeds, which allows the juice to retain its crisp acidity. The soft, light blush color of this wine is the result of being in contact with the skins for only a few hours. This wine did not go through malolactic fermentation.

A 25-year legacy of making exceptional wines to inspire in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley. www.JWine.com As a gutsy 25-year old woman, Judy Jordan set out on a quest to create her vision of the perfect sparkling wine. Her journey took her to Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley where she and her team masterfully crafted an elegant sparkling wine collection that was met with a passionately loyal following. Judy was inspired by Mother Nature's bounty of microclimates laced throughout J's 9 Russian River vineyards, and recognized the ability to also craft remarkable still wines. When people told her it was "impossible" for a sparkling wine house to make great still wine, it further fueled her competitive nature to bring the ultimate wine experience to life. With a commitment to innovation and a passion for wine, today we are proud to produce award-winning sparkling wines as well as highly lauded varietal still wines. www.jwine.com www.jvineyards.blogspot.com www.twitter.com/JWinery Facebook: www.facebook.com/JWinery Read less

The softThe 2009 J Vineyards Vin Gris is a dry rosé that displays a light ruby color reminiscent of Scarlett Johansson’s lips in the movie “Lost in Translation.” Lively aromas of strawberry and blueberries leap from the glass. The nose segues into mouthwatering flavors of ripe summer berries, strawberry, and tart cherry pie. There’s a nice acidity on the palate and the flavors follow the nose. This well-balanced wine starts with a crisp fruitiness, followed by a plush mid-palate and then opens to a dry and extremely refreshing finish. The wine has a balanced acidity that brightens and cleanses the palate. This is the perfect summer sipper.
