The Story:  ZEITGEIST (tsyt- gaist) is a philosophical term meaning the spirit of the times. The word was coined by the German Romanticists to describe the cultural, ethical and spiritual mood of an era.

WHAT IS TROUSSEAU GRIS?

A: A native of the Jura region in France,  is a true "Grey" grape and can make either white wines or slightly hued wines.  Zeitgeist’s winemaker elected to press the grapes the moment they arrived at the winery, opting for a fresh white wine style.  Pressed very lightly to avoid any bitterness, the juice is then transferred to Stainless Steel and Neutral French Oak Barrels.  This low alcohol (13%) is the must have for Spring or Summer wine sipping on the porch to the seafood dinners!

The Wine: The 2015 Zeitgeist Trousseau Gris, is unabashedly straightforward: fresh, vibrant crisp, and gorgeously balanced. Clean notes of white peach and lemon are grounded by mineral and a touch of anise. The wine hits your palate with energy and crispness, but gradually evolves into a more complex and round wine. The 2015 demonstrates the wonderful quality of Trousseau Gris to be both elegant and medium-bodied. It pairs well with a wide variety of foods; from the expected (seafood and veggies) to the less-than-expected (rib-eye, French fries and pork belly)! You will not be disappointed!!!
