Skin Fermented - 'Orange' Wines

Join us for a tasting Nov 22-23rd - RSVP at https://tsorangewine19.eventbrite.com

Centime, French for Penny, is Two Shepherds small annual production of skin fermented Rhone white wines, known as "orange" wine, because of the color the skin contact gives.

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.

Trousseau Gris is an insanely rare variety, only one verified planting in CA, the gray skinned variant originally from the Jura.

The 2016 is yet a different style from the darker tannic 2015 and the fresh vibrant 2017. Five days skin contact, as standard, with partial stem inclusion adding complexity, texture, more nuanced than the 2015. Best with food.

New release preview, as some won't wait!

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 6 months.  Similar to the 2017 release, this vintage is destemmed, allowing a fresh and vibrant expression.

SKU: 2017PinotGris

Dolce, our affable miniature Sicilian donkey 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!
