Type: Orange Wine
Chilion Cortese is a skin-fermented white wine made from 35-year-old, organically farmed vines. The juice macerates with the skins for roughly 6 months. The fermentation occurrs naturally with native yeast and without temperature control. The wine goes through full native malolactic fermentation. It is bottled unfined, unfiltered and with no added sulfur.
Chilion expresses the incredible complexity of the Cortese grape. The extended maceration provides amplified spice, herbs, and phenolics here.
