2020 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. Similar to the 2017 thru 2019 releases, this vintage is destemmed, allowing a fresh and vibrant expression.
The 2020 vintage produced half its normal yield due to frost and rain shatter, so grab some while you can. The 2020 vintage is also more intense in flavor as a result of the low yield. Only 125 cases made.
