2018 Pinot Gris ramato
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!
