Lot #36 J VINEYARDS AND WINERY
- Russian River Valley
ABOUT THE WINE:
J Vineyards & Winery has never before produced a single-vineyard sparkling wine – until this extraordinary “Eastside Effervescence” lot. Eastside Knoll Vineyard was one of J’s first estate vineyard properties and it remains a highlight of the winery’s portfolio today. Effervescence is defined as “the property of forming bubbles” or “an appealingly lively quality.” This auction lot has effervescence in spades!
This sparkling wine pays homage to Eastside Knoll Vineyard as a heritage estate property for J, as well as the winery’s focus on its array of unique vineyard properties. With this Blanc de Noirs 100% Pinot Noir bubbly Brut, Winemaker Nicole Hitchcock aims to capture a different expression of Eastside Knoll, using her expertise and her team’s unique perspective as a leading Russian River Valley traditional method sparkling producer.
“Eastside Effervescence” reveals red berry and floral aromas with undertones of earth, black cherry and wild strawberries. The palate is crisp yet full and lively, with notes of candied citrus, cranberry and raspberry mingling with deeper hints of fresh pastry dough.
