2021 Ribolla Gialla
Ribolla Gialla is a newer grape in the Johan Vineyards family. We grafted this variety into our vineyard in 2017, along with a few other experimental varieties. It is a native grape championed in Northern Italy, namely the Fruili region. The grape has a distinctly unique and exciting expression of the Van Duzer Corridor AVA. It produces lower alcohols, fine tannins, and lively aromatics evocative of honeydew and cherry blossoms. We fermented the wine on skins for 30 days, then barrel-aged for a year before bottling – unfined/filtered.
