Skin Fermented - 'Orange' Wines

 

A unique wine from an obscure grey skinned grape, originally from the Jura.  The grapes are the only planting in CA, from a 40 year old vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Fermented with native yeast on the skins for five days to extract color, flavor and texture, then aged in neutral barrels for 8 months.  Similar to the 2017 thru 2020 releases, this vintage is destemmed, allowing a fresh and vibrant expression.

Who says orange wines have to be tannic and/or oxidized. If you have had William's unique style of red wines, you may appreciate Centime, a gentler, more approachable orange wine.

The 2013 release is mostly Grenache Blanc from Santa Ynez, with a litte Marsanne and Roussanne from El Dorado blended in.

This wine was crushed and fermented on the skins for 12 days until dry, exactly like a red wine, then very lightly pressed by hand to a neutral barrel, where it aged for 10 months.

Nice structure, minimal tannins for an "orange" wine with aromas and flavors of citrus peel and spice. Recommended serve with food.

1 barrel - 25 cases crafted.

/ Skin Contact Vermentino
SKU: AW19CLFF
 

The latest release of our most popular orange wine, unfortunately in shorter supply this year with vineyard yield down 50% from drought. This also contributes to this vintage being a slightly darker, almost red color, and a more intense savory notes.

Dolce and Sofia, our affable miniature Sicilian donkeys inspired this wine. Destemmed and left on the skins to start a native yeast fermentation, then after 5 days pressed to finish fermentation and aged in neutral French barrels. The 5 days of skin contact impart a copper hue, reminiscent of Italian Ramato. The taste is uniquely its own, landing somewhere between an orange wine and a rosé.  Fun and fresh, with lingering savory notes. A wine as unique as our Dolce. Hee Haw!
