Trousseau Gris is a rare color mutation of the red Trousseau. In California, Trousseau Gris used to be known as Gray Riesling. There's still a bit found as part of old field blend vineyards, but apparently the only varietal block left is a 10 acre plot in the Fanucchi Wood Road Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. This is where the 2013 Wind Gap Trousseau Gris wine comes from.

Some of you may know the name Pax Mahle from his first winery ' PAX ' which garnered high scores and much notoriety. Though he has always been influenced by French styles of winemaking, it was the bold, powerful Syrahs that first brought praise and attention to Pax in his new chapter as Sommelier-turned-Winemaker.

According to Pax: "Wind Gap is all about classically styled wines that represent the new California."Many of Wind Gaps vineyards are planted along or are directly influenced by one wind gap or another. These geological breaks in the coastal hills funnel wind inland and strongly influence the growing and ripening of the grapes.
