Top Notes For
J Vineyards & Winery

Delightful bouquet of pear, Meyer lemon and tropical/pineapple fruit. The lush mouthfeel bursts with flavors of ripe pear and sweet orange blossom honey, then finishes with a distinct minerality. A swath of lemon-lime on the palate highlights the fruit and acid.

J's Winemaking Team Melissa, Scott and Scott are exploring their Joie de Gris in our estate Pinot Gris Cooper Vineyard. Check out the dark skins on the fruit which belie this white grape's status. The resulting wine is fresh, tropical and delicious.

Delectable is right place for the delicious Pinot Gris from J Vineyards Beautiful pale yellow color Fragrant pear and stone fruit aromas with savory notes Flavors of pear in the midpalate and finish Mouth watering acidity as good with aperitif cheese with dinner prep as with chicken Am mostly pairing it with surviving Monday

Good, for Pinot Gris. Round and viscous mouthfeel and light pear notes.

Fruity smell, fruit hint first-bitter after taste. Tasty in the mouth tart going down

Interesting Pinot Gris. Tropical fruits with a caramel finish. Chardonnay like qualities.
