Skin Contact

Salko & Marjan Simcic

Selekuja Ribolla 2012

Not quite an orange wine but some evident skin contact, oily texture. Mineral-driven, little obvious fruit although some hints of dried apricot and nectarine pith, with some butterscotch and green olive. Very cool, would pair well with Mediterranean cuisine — 12 days ago

Vista Kras Malvasia 2012

Very interesting glass to follow up to the valentini. Skin contact gives it weight and texture. Medium to full bodied. Tasty — 8 days ago

Ballard Lane Rose Wine 2016

This is a very light colored rose. It says only 3 hues of skin contact and not much residual sugar. Apparently that's what I like. This one is dry, crisp, refreshing! — a day ago

Rue de la Soif Sauvignon Blanc 2015

I guess it's a good thing that I'm such a fan of Chenin Blanc and heavy-bodied, skin contact white wines. — 3 hours ago

Fun list at The Exchange... Awesome skin contact. Big and round on the nose, but focused acidity on the palate. — a day ago

Venezia Giulia IGT Ribolla Gialla

Really excited to have discovered this producer. A really great skin contact wine, bold and earth, paired nicely with vitello tonnato. — 20 days ago
