Jolie Laide Sauvignon Gris


Also known as Fié Gris or Sauvignon Rose in its homeland of the Loire Valley, Sauvignon Gris is the uber rare pink skinned mutation of Sauvignon Blanc. While it can share some similar qualities as its Blanc cousin, the Gris tends to be more subdued in nature with subtle herbaceous notes and not as overtly green and grassy. Grown in the cool weather and granite limestone soils of Paicines in San Benito. Whole cluster pressed and naturally fermented in a combination of stainless tank and neutral barrels, and aged in neutral barrique. Light and bright, saline, lemon blossom, kaffir lime leaf and exotic melon aromatics. The palate is elegantly textured yet cuts with refreshing citrus acidity.
