Skin Contact

Savage Grace

De Gris Underwood Mountain Vineyards Skin Contact Pinot Gris 2019

Hard to believe this is Pinot Gris, so much color! Ruby red with an orange tinge, very good clarity with some lees sediment. Citrus note in nose, grapefruit and plum notes in mouth with mineral finish. The winemaker gets Italian plum and pomegranate in this, I can see the former. Really different wine, easy to sip but fair amount of skin tannins, maceration here. Good acid, fresh fruity flavors but subtly so — 15 days ago

The Hermit Ram

Skin Fermented Müller-Thurgau 2020

Skin contact Müller Thurgau Sauvignon Blanc Blend aged in Amphorae.
Cloudy, zesty, salty, fresh. Apricots & underripe mango, salty rocks, a hint of hay.
On the palate lively, zingy, fresh. A bit spicy, with nice purity and a wild edge to it.
Brilliant with food but also v. nice solo.

Got this rec from the Wine Shoppe in Waco, TX when I asked for a funky white - the muscadet grapes are macerated so it’s almost like an orange wine. — a month ago

Nine Oaks

Rkatsiteli 2018

Great balance, skin contact evident but not flagrantly orange. More than held its own against spicy thai. Buy again, thrilling QPR. — 5 days ago
