Product Description

Auxerrois is a cross between Pinot Noir and an ignoble variety called Gouais blanc. Auxerrois is also the name of the area surrounding the town of Auxerre near Chablis, but the variety has disappeared from that area and all other parts of Burgundy. Ribbon Springs vineyard sits at 400-600 feet above sea level in the Ribbon Ridge appellation of the Chehalem Mountains. The soils are sandstone-based, sedimentary in origin. The wine has distinctive jasmine, kiwi, fresh fennel and pear notes. The palate brings ripe apple and pineapple flavors, textural richness, and a distinct mineral finish. The wine has body and length on the palate, yet remains fresh.
