J Vineyards & Winery Viognier Alexander Valley Hoot Owl Vineyard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

206 J VIOGNIER ~ HOOT OWL CREEK VINEYARD ~ ALEXANDER VALLEYThe VineyardThe 2006 J Viognier is made entirely of Viognier grapes from the Hoot Owl Creek Vineyard in Alexander Valley. ProcessingWhole grape clusters were hand-harvested, then pressed gently in J's Coquard press. This uniquely gentle press minimizes the extraction of harsh components from the skins of the grapes. AgeingThe free run juice was kept seperate from the press during fermentation. A variety of yeasts were used to tease different aromas from the aromatic juice. It was all fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fresh, unique aromas of this varietal. It was bottled shortly after fermentation to capture the fruit at it's peak. Tasting NotesThis wine displays J's signature style: fresh fruit aromas of kiwi, tangerine, pineapple, cantaloupe, and guava; floral aroma of citrus blossom, all encased in light vanilla and honey. The heady aroma leads the way to a full, lush mouth with silky vanilla, and fresh tropical fruits. This wine is no wallflower, it was kissed by the Sonoma sun and is as vibrant and outgoing as the people who made it.

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
