Type: Orange Wine
Grape: Pinot Gris/Chardonnay
Organic, whole-cluster Pinot Gris suspended in direct press Chardonnay for 30 days in a traditional open top fermentation cube. Drained and pressed into mostly neutral barrels with a touch of newer wood formally used for Chardonnay. 11 months in barrel followed by 5 months in stainless steel. Only 12ppm sulfur added, at bottling. No fining or filtration.
The color of amber in the glass, the wine itself tastes of slightly underripe clementines, red clay and the faintest hint of sandalwood.
