Why we love it
Rich, intense flavours from a surprising blend of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc – the culmination of a joint venture to produce a fine Indian wine.

Tasting notes
Lemon yellow in colour. On the nose and palate, a combination of the green-apple, white-pear and stone-fruit flavours of Chardonnay and the fresher, more vibrant lime, lemongrass, white-pepper and herbaceous flavours of Sauvignon Blanc.

Food pairing
Excellent with chicken, pork, fish or meaty shellfish such as lobster.

Additional information
J’NOON is a joint venture between Kapil Sekhri of Fratelli wines and Jean-Charles Boisset. The name is a French take on the Urdu word “Junoon”, which means “passion”.

J’NOON’s vineyards span 95 hectares over three sites in Akluj, on the right bank of the Nira River. The climate in the region is sub-tropical but the altitude of 650 metres allows the grapes to rest at night and retain freshness and acidity.

The two grape varieties were processed and fermented separately in stainless-steel tanks at 18 to 20°C for 10 to 15 days. After fermentation, the Sauvignon Blanc was kept in stainless-steel tanks, while the Chardonnay was racked into 100% new French-oak barrels, where it spent six months ageing. The wine was blended and aged for a further two months in stainless-steel tanks prior to bottling.

The blend is 60% Chardonnay and 40% Sauvignon Blanc.
