Stony Brook The “J” 2015


About The Wine

This is a fragrant blend of equal parts Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay with 8% Semillon. Only the Semillon and a small portion of the Chardonnay were barrel-fermented and matured for eleven months in second fill French oak barriques. The Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier are unwooded which gives a wonderful crisp, citrus freshness to the blend.

This wine has great balance with rich layers of aromatic floral spice and butterscotch, countered by a touch of sweetness from the Viognier and bright acidity from the Sauvignon Blanc. The palate is creamy and silky, with a long textured finish, while the wood component adds a delicate hint of hazelnuts.

Serving Suggestions

A wonderful wine to serve with Thai food, or any dish that contains ginger and a touch of chili.
