2019 Centime - Skin Fermented Vermentino
“Centime” harkens back to France's copper penny, and celebrates our full skin-contact series (aka orange wine). The grapes are destemmed and fermented on the skins for 10 days, then aged in neutral oak 10 months. This is a non-traditional orange wine, and at 11.3% alc, is light and fresh, while still textural. If you've always been curious about orange wines, but not a fan of oxidized wines, this is a great introduction to the style! 70 cases made.
If you've been enjoying our Centime wines for a while, you may have noticed a change. Since 2018, we've focused on Vermentino. Prior to the 2018 vintage, Grenache Blanc was featured. The Centime penny has gone through some changes as well, until it was withdrawn in 2002, when France switched over to the Euro. Long live Centime!
