Skins Chenin Blanc Blend 2020

Fun orange wine, 41/37/9/8/5 blend of Chenin Blanc, Pinot Gris, Albariño, Verdelho and Riesling. Looks like cherry skin-colored Rosé with excellent clarity, but these are all white varietals. Complex smear of flavors with a light tannin finish. Don’t think I’ve had anything like it, though that hint of Riesling is the bow on the package. Experimental and lovely. I admire its structure, almost dry, balanced but tannin-forward without excess, — 12 days ago

SP68 Bianco Terre Siciliane Albanello Muscat of Alexandria 2017

Similar notes to 118 weeks ago. A dirty mid Orange/Tangerine in colour - a little cloudy. Aromas of apricot and mouldy orange. Skinnsy apricot flavours with mild acid. A skins contact white wine fermented in clay amphora in the ground. We visited there a few years ago in Sicily. Finishes with a trace of bitterness from the skins. Natural wines - when they get them right they can be quite good but having just done a week of vintage in Coonawarra at Bellwether - you need to take risks with natural wine. — 2 days ago

Stragaio Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi

Stracacio 2014.
frankly I was expecting more complexity and strength on the finish. However a good and interesting Verdicchio. I loved the limestone nouances on the nose. Feeling quite oaky even if apparently it didn’t rest on oak neither on skins. I’d have appreciated a way or the other. This isn’t a Natural, neither a conventional wine.

You guys should be looking to OR for domestic Chardonnay, trust me that I understand buying in the US market is challenging for your business model, but OR is the new Burgundy. FWIW to you @Lyle Fass

We sell OR pinot, gamay and Riesling. We can do what we want business wise. The issue is customer demand.

Les Argiles Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2017

Beautifully textured, almost oily like Viognier but not; Green apples & skins on the nose; deep, deep minerality & that Chenin Blanc cotton thing on the palate. Just a super bottle of wine. Plus the bottle is built like a tank. — 13 days ago
