Food Pairings for J Vineyards & Winery Pinot Gris Cooper Vineyard
Whole grape clusters were hand-harvested, and then pressed gently in J’s Coquard press. This uniquely gentle method of pressing minimizes the extraction of harsh components from the skins and seeds of the grapes. The free-run and press juices are fermented together in 100% stainless steel tanks, kept at 55 degrees. This wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation.
The 2009 J Vineyards “Cooper Vineyard” Pinot Gris has a bouquet of honeysuckle, orange blossom and lime on the nose, with hints of mango and jasmine. The crisp, clean entry and velvety mouthfeel unfold into flavors of sweet summer melon, tangerine and peach cobbler. There is a hint of honey on the palette that complements the fruit and acid nicely. The lingering finish invites you to relax and enjoy another taste. This well balanced and layered wine is a great complement to a variety of foods, from spicy Thai cuisine to south of the border Mexican dishes that are moderately spiced.
