Jolie Laide-Trousseau Gris-"Fanucchi-Wood Road Vineyard" Russian River Valley-2015

Jolie Laide
Trousseau Gris
"Fanucchi-Wood Road Vineyard" Russian River Valley


A unique grape, Trousseau Gris is of French Alps origin, but is rarely planted there now. Foot-stomped then slow ferment, first whole cluster then pressed off to finish. Aged 6 months in neutral barrel. Spicy, savory wine. Orange hue from the skin contact. Smell and taste quince, tarragon, white pepper, kumquat, grapefruit zest. Drink it with sushi, sashimi and ceviche.

Owner/Winemaker Scott Schultz: "Wild pomelo, melon and quince, white tea and tarragon. Some skin contact adds an electric coral pink color, breath of palate and subtle tannin."
