2021 Trousseau GrisRussian River Valley
The super focused 2021 Trousseau Gris is fresh and precise. Like always, vibrancy is the hallmark of this rare and fun varietal. This vintage is replete with notes of lemon verbena, star fruit and bergamot. A clean and concise minerality anchors the mid palate. Ready to ship in late March and ready to enjoy the second it hits your doorstep.
A native of the Jura region, Trousseau Gris is a true "Grey" grape and can make either white wines or slightly colored wines. We choose to press the grapes the moment they arrive at the winery, opting for a fresh white wine style. Pressed lightly to avoid any bitterness, the juice is transferred to stainless steel barrels. The wines ferment at low temperatures and can take as long as 6 weeks to finish. We age the wine on its lees, and assemble and bottle the blend in February. The wine does not go through malo-lactic fermentation.
