Winemaker's Notes

The aromatics of the wine are dominated by vibrant fruit and floral notes; applesauce, cinnamon, tangerine, honeysuckle and orange blossom. A dusting of vanilla and butterscotch is the contribution of the barrel-fermented portion of the wine. A full, layered body of flavors immediately followed by a long grape aftertaste marks the palate sensations. Flavors of honeydew melon, fresh apricots, white peaches, fresh green grapes, and spicy grapefruit intrigue the palate and finish with a hint of sweetness that was designed to balance the natural acidity of the wine. While we believe that this wine pairs well with many types of cuisine, we highly recommend slightly spicy Pacific-rim dishes as a perfect accompaniment to the J Pinot Gris.
