With grapes meticulously chosen from the best locations in California, J Pinot Gris offers an alluring bouquet of lemongrass, Kaffir lime and Asian pear plus tropical notes of pineapple and jasmine flowers. The complex, medium-bodied mouthfeel reveals crisp citrus and lemongrass, combined with the rich, ripe succulence of pineapple, green pear and jasmine. This intense and layered wine finishes dry with bright, mouthwatering acidity and distinct minerality. Ideal for everyday enjoyment or entertaining with friends, the versatile J California Pinot Gris pairs well with Asian Thai cuisine, tomato gazpacho or a simple goat cheese with rosemary crackers.

Winemaker Notes
The 2014 vintage continued a three-year cycle of warm, dry, excellent growing conditions. Described as the “year of the early,” 2014 saw early budbreak, early flowering, early veraison and early harvest. Ideal spring and summer weather, with a few well-timed heat spikes and cooling sessions, ushered in harvest at the end of July, marking the earliest in J history. During the long growing season, we watered only when needed - mindful of the irrigation to keep the vines in balance and honor the integrity of the fruit. The result was beautiful, small-to-medium berry clusters that produced balanced wine with good acidity and ample fruit.
