Producer notes: "85% Trousseau, 15% Mondeuse. Pete Stolpman and Rajat Parr's esoteric partnership 'Combe' means a 'small sheltered valley within a vineyard' in French. When Rajat Parr began making Sandhi Chardonnay alongside Stolpman in the Lompos Wine Ghetto back in 2010, he immediately started a campagne to plant Trousseau on Stolpman's Ballard Canyon limestone soils. Vignerons in Jura seek out limestone for their Trousseau plantings, and Rajat theorized that Trousseau, a varietal that often has difficulty achieving ripeness, would flourish in the sunny, arid Ballard Canyon wind tunnel. Left whole-cluster un-crushed for one week prior to pressing. Sealed stainless steel fermenting tank. Neutral 500L French oak puncheons for 4 months. Tasting Notes: Glowing blood orange in color. Watermelon backed by tangerine and firm nectarine. Sour cherry and citrus peel check honeydew melon on the mid-palate. Max tang and zip with firm flesh. We've chased the dragon of the inaugural 'sweet and sour' 2017 vin gris and on our 4th attempt to replicate, this is the closest we've come. The 2021 Vin Gris is the wine the team is most excited to drink reservoir-side this summer once it has opened up and gotten more funky and nuanced. Alcohol 11%."
