2016 Twinkles

This lightly sparkling wine has a very elegant fizz or what we call a "twinkle" of effervescence.

This crisp and clean, well balanced and refreshing wine is layered with vibrant aromas of raspberries, strawberries, and watermelon. On the finish, hints of red fruit dance on the palate ending with a twinkle of citrus and minerals. This is 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 4 to 5 years to savor the balance of fruit and acidity. Enjoy!

2017 Golden Hallows

Our premiere Vidal Blanc and Traminette blend white wine offering a harmonious balance of fruit and acidity.

This wine is crisp, clean and refreshing. Equal parts of elegance and delicate aromatics offer pineapple, passion fruit and white flowers with loads of Asian pear, freshly peeled apple, and pineapple dancing on the palate. The finish is crisp and rounded with a citrus and wet stone. This is a very enjoyable wine alone and also pairs well with shellfish, white fish, chicken, roasted pork, pastas in butter or pesto sauces. This wine should be consumed within the next 4 to 5 years to savor the harmonious balance of fruit and acidity.

Vidal Blanc and Traminette are our only white grapes planted at JOLO.  Vidal is an offspring of the Ugni Blanc grape from Italy and the Traminette is an offspring of the Gewurztraminer grape from Germany.  We press the juice into stainless steel tanks to begin its fermentation process. We use specially selected French style yeast that we believe accentuates the bright tropical fruit of the Vidal, the flowery aromatics of the Traminette, and juicy mouth-feel this wine possesses.

2016 Happy Endings

Our Yadkin Valley Vidal Blanc is from a single lot of older vines. This "sweet wine" was made from the same Vidal Blanc as the Golden Hallows and then blended with the "sweet reserve" juice to provide the residual sugar. It  has a residual sugar level of just over 6 imparting the perfect sweetness. Although we label it as a sweet wine, it is flexible enough to complement Pâtés and Foie Gras. 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.

COMMENTS FROM THE WINE MAKER:

2016 provided a very good growing season for this fruit.  Very little rainfall and warm sunny days slowly ripen the fruit and provided great balance lending itself to be made into a dry or sweet wine. So we did both. This wine is medium bodied and is layered with aromas of the stone fruit, honeysuckle, and hints of pear and apple. White peach, pear and minerals dance on the palate with a velvety long finished. While this wine is enjoyable now it will continue to evolve and develop over the years in the bottle. This wine pairs well with cakes, ice cream, chocolate, tarts, cookies as well as foie gras and pâtés.  This wine should be well chilled and will age gracefully over the next decade and beyond. Serve chilled & Enjoy!
