Who says orange wines have to be tannic and/or oxidized? This is a gentler, more approachable orange wine. 

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. The 2017 release is 100% Grenache Blanc from the Russian River Valley, Sonoma. This is out final release of Centime as Grenache Blanc, with the switch to Vermentino for 2018+.

Farmed organically.  Native to southern France, the name means ‘lip stinger’ – a naturally high acid white grape perfect for our wine style. This 6 barrel lot was fermented and aged in 50% stainless steel, and 50% neutral puncheon (double sized barrel) for 8 months. Mouthwatering acidity, weight and aromatics. 12.1% alc. 

The wine has nice acidity, but also great texture, weight and mouthfeel, making it a complex white. Vinography agrees:  "..crisp and juicy but with a richness of flavor that makes it a bit more serious than you expect it to be when you first put it in your mouth...bright lemony and grapefruit citrus flavors are sharp and juicy thanks to excellent acidity. There’s also a hint of candle wax to the flavor and a faintly honeyed richness "

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!

The 2019 was featured in the NY Times by  Eric Asimov in 'The Polarizing Power of Orange Wine'  and in Bloomberg by wine writer Elin McCoy as 'The Best 50 Wines under $50, 2019'
