Pax Trousseau Gris 'Fanucchi-Wood Road Vineyard'
WINE TYPE: White/Orange
VARIETAL: Trousseau Gris
COUNTRY: United States
REGION: Sonoma County
APPELLATION: Russian River Valley
Also known as Grey Riesling, Trousseau Gris has long been planted in California, but rarely takes center stage as it is typically added as a blender to bring aromatics and texture to other wines. This single varietal example from Pax Mahle is pure drinking pleasure and has not previously been available to us in Wisconsin.
Produced as a skin-contact orange wine, it's as "natural" as it gets. Aromas of fresh wild flowers and orchard fruits lead into a textured mouthfeel and a slightly tannic finish.
