Decanter: Jefford on sous-voile wines

by TomHill » Tue Feb 27, 2018 11:20 am

A quite interesting article, as linked in WineTerroirist, by AndrewJefford in Decanter on the making of sous-voile wines in Tokaji/Jura/Sherry regions; what they have in common and how they differ:
Jefford:sous-voile wines
Jefford rejects the notion that these wines are siblings or cousins as not particularly helpful to the consumer.
This is a genre of wine I find quite interesting. Like orange wines, these are wines that really need food to accompany them.
Just wish these wines were a bit more commonly available, particularly Jura and Tokaji.
Anyway, an interesting read. Another style of wine they should be pursuing in Calif, where they could make world-class
sous-voile wines. In fact, both BillEaston and FloridaJim have ventured down this rabbit-hole.

OXIDIZED WINES vs. OXIDATIVE WINES

Courtney Schiessl (with help from both Jancis Robinson and Wink Lorch) does a decent job explaining the
technique of not topping up barrels regularly.

Finos and manzanillas from Jerez are distinctive in that a special yeast called flor grows on the top of the wine. Do either the Jura or Tokaj districts use flor?

As stated in the article posted by Tom, what all these wines (and any wine in a barrel that is deliberately not
regularly, "topped-up) have in common is that a "film yeast" or "cellar fungus" might play a role in how they turn out.
