Tussock Jumper launches single-serve wines

Posted on July 09, 2019

New Rochelle, N.Y.—June 19th 2019 – Global wine portfolio Tussock Jumper announced today the official launch of three new 187 ml single-serve wines, created for consumers on the go. Featuring a Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from France, as well as a Pinot Grigio from Italy, the wines are available at a growing list of retailers, including Citi Field stadium, and retailers in two of New York’s highest traffic train station terminals: Grand Central Station and Pennsylvania Station.

Each of the wines comes in a recyclable plastic bottle with a pop off cup for easy drinking. “The portability of the 187 ml bottles has been a big hit with our customers, as the format is the perfect size for their highly active, on-the-go lifestyle,” said John Oliveira of Tri-Vin Imports, Inc.

Single-serve wines have become increasingly popular among consumers and represent a significant new category in the overall wine market. Smaller format packaging also allows brands to test new varietals, and help educate consumers to mix-and-match wines, trying new products before they commit to a larger format package.

Tussock Jumper Delle Venezie Pinot Grigio, Italy ($3.99/187ml)
A go-to summer white wine, notes of orange zest, pineapple, white peach, and pear flower unfold into delicate tropical aromas and a long, flirty finish. Pair it with seafood, fish, and light dishes, or toss a few into a cooler for a day at the beach.

Tussock Jumper Pinot Noir, France ($3.99/187ml)
A light red wine with flavors of juicy red berries, cherry pie, and wild strawberries. Aromas of crushed black fruits, raspberry jam, vanilla, and baking spice are also on the nose. Pair it with grilled burgers or glazed salmon, as well as vegetarian fare like balsamic Portobello mushrooms or barbecue spiced kale and quinoa salad.

Tussock Jumper Chardonnay, France ($3.99/187ml)
A pale golden color with aromas of apricot, pear, and green apple, this white wine is fresh and fruit forward, with notes of toasted sweet hazelnuts, citrus flower, and just a hint of vanilla from brief oak aging. The perfect wine for pairing with fettuccini alfredo, lemon butter shrimp, and vegetarian fare.


A GLOBALLY SOURCED PORTFOLIO
As a gold medal award winning wine portfolio, Tussock Jumper Wines sources only the best limited production vintages each growing season from producers around the globe.
