The 2019 growing season here in Pilot Mountain was marked by very little rainfall, warm sunny days with a constant breeze flowing through the vineyards. This crisp, clean, well balanced and refreshing wine is layered with vibrant aromas of cranberry, strawberry and a citrus zest. On the finish, hints of red berries dance on the palate ending with a twinkle of citrus and minerals. This is a very enjoyable sparkling wine alone but also pairs well with shellfish, caviar, seafood, chicken, roasted pork, pate and eggs. This sparkling wine should be consumed within the next four to five years to savor the balance of fruit and acidity.

The 2018 growing season here in the Yadkin Valley was marked by significant rainfall in the early spring and summer. Warmer, sunnier days came at just the right time to help slowly ripen the fruit. We watched closely to harvest at just the optimal times pre and post Hurricane Florence. This allowed the fruit to mature in a well-balanced fashion.

This elegant wine has a supple and velvety mouth-fell with a finish that demonstrates balanced tannins, acidity and fruit.

This "sweet wine" was made from the same Vidal Blanc and Traminette as the Golden Hallows, just different percentges. The finished wine is then blended with the "sweet reserve" juice, which is just the pressed grape juice, to provide the residual sugar. It  has a residual sugar level of just over 8  imparting the perfect acid and sweetness. Although we label it as a sweet wine, it is flexible enough to complement Pâté, Foie Gras and ripened cheese. This exceptional wine was made in limited quantities without undergoing a secondary fermentation to preserve the bright fruit and mineral qualities. This wine exhibits the care and passion taken in winemaking at JOLO Winery & Vineyards.

Varietals: 50% Vidal Blanc and 50% Traminette
