Skin Contact


Les Collines Vineyard Skin-Contact Sémillon 2019

Another winner from Grosgrain in Walla Walla. Skin contact Sèmillon. Recall this being the star of the tasting, aged in a variety of things like clay amphora, concrete, stainless then blended. Big on citrus, very limey, rocks. Super bright, screaming for summertime. Dig it. — 5 days ago

Sauvignon 2017

It’s skin contact and you’ve taken the training wheels off but your dad may be trotting behind to make sure you don’t fall. It smells more...challenging? than it is on the palate. Interesting, complex, welcoming. — 20 days ago

Venus La Universal

Dido Blanco Montsant White Blend 2017

About 20% of the grapes see skin contact which for me adds just the right amount of body and textural interest while preserving freshness. A little nutty, a little tropical, a little mineral, very delicious — 7 days ago

Skin-Contact Maceration Gros Manseng Blend

Perfume nose of dried apricot, orange marmalade, jasmine, and wet stone. Just enough tannins to balance out the searing but still pleasant acidity. Jouuuuuuves, you've done it again. — a month ago
