2012 Skin Ferment Grenache Blanc
In 2012 we further experimented with Grenache Blanc on the skins (orange wine). We had one vat on the skins for 6x days and 4 vats for 11x days. Our 'regular' Grenache Blanc included 18% skin fermented wine or the 6x day and one of the 11x day barrels. This wine is a 2 barrel blend where both were 11x day skin ferments which makes an entirely different wine that is incredibly fleshy with long tannins that linger for minutes, not seconds. This is a wine that demands a table of food and perhaps an open mind. Comparing the this wine to our 'regular' bottling is definitely a fascinating tasting that will impress the geekiest of wine geeks!
