Nomine Amoris by J. Brix
vibrant - honey - red grapefruit - strawberry bubblegum
J Brix adores the variety California has to offer - compelled to make tiny quantities of as many different wines as possible... and, try to add a new grape or style each harvest. They use neutral vessels, native-yeast fermentation, and absolutely nothing else, with the exception of sulfur dioxide as necessary. In keeping with this minimalist approach, they choose not to fine, filter or cold-stabilize our wines. Their motto, in winemaking and life: ONLY LOVE.
Nomine Amoris means “in the name of love” in Latin. Only Love is our motto in winemaking and life, and we love this Ramato-style expression of the Pinot Gris fruit.
