2017 Trousseau Gris
A unique wine from an obscure grey skinned grape, originally from the Jura. The grapes are the only planting in CA, from a 40 year old vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Fermented with native yeast on the skins for five days to extract color, flavor and texture, then aged in neutral barrels for 8 months, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Our previous release (2015 vintage) was whole-cluster, while the 2017, our 5th consecutive vintage from this vineyard, is destemmed, allowing a fresh and vibrant expression.
