Skin Fermented - 'Orange' Wines


Rosé returns after a hiatus, with our first ever rosé of Mourvedre, a wine we enjoy greatly when done well, but had not yet tried our hand at it. Suffice to say we are in love, and plan to repeat.

Fermented with native yeast, aged 75% stainless steel, 25% neutral barrel. A fresh, vibrant wine that can be enjoyed all year long, its a fresh mouthwatering treat now, and will reward cellaring through the year as well. 10.7% alc,  200 cases crafted.

Magnum! Only 12 made.

Trousseau Gris is a very obscure grey skinned variety, originally from the Jura in France, and a 'unicorn' even there. The famed Fanucchi Vineyard is the only planting of Trousseau Gris in California, with a total of just 10 acres planted over 40 years ago. The Fanucchi Vineyard is adjacent to our farm in Fulton, which is how William first started making Trousseau Gris, first for personal consumption, and then by demand, he aquiesced into allowing a non-Rhone a part of our portolio.

 Fermented the first 5 days on the skins, this release has a medium orange, pink color, intense aromatics of a white, and the texture of a light red, basically refusing to be put in a category. Total Lot: 125 cases

Very limited!

For our upcoming July 16th vertical tasting at the winery, we are offering a limited number of these bottles which we have dug out of storage, after waiting years for this event. The wine is pristine, beautiful, and still youthful... we have consumed several to make sure!

Centime, France's original 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. This is a special 1/2 barrel, 12 case lot, from the exact same lot as the regular 2012 Grenache Blanc, but vinified like a red wine, and very different flavor profile. 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 30 gallon 1/2 neutral barrel, where it aged for 10 months.
