Skin Contact

Fongoli

Laetitia Umbria Spoletino Trebbiano 2018

Mmm. Vibrant grapefruit, guava, pine and fresh barnyard funk, brilliant butterscotchy confectionary aroma. Heady. Bright citrus lime on palate, zippy acidity yielding to a rich, moussey body, cheese rind, and pleasant, long finish with citrus peel bitterness. Broad citrus and minerals. Really beautiful skin contact sparkling wine! — 21 hours ago

@Josh Morgenthau is the barnyard funk attributed to an amount of Brett?

@Dennis P. Good question... I’d say there’s some but I’m not particularly sensitive to Brett flaws (they say it’s a genetic trait) so my tolerance may be high. The funk seemed more from the bottle being a little reductive... it blew off in a few minutes and revealed a beautiful and complex bouquet.

Tête et Queue Petite Arvine Amigne 2016

This was a skin contact Petite Arvine, I think. 12% abv, but tasted riper and richer than that. A bit of bitter on the finish. — 13 days ago

Sonoma County Pinot Gris

One of the best pinot gris I have had. Bright and full of texture. Full skin contact so it looks like a rosé. Zero funk — 6 days ago

Escherndorfer Lump Silvaner 2015

Erste Lage Silvaner from Franken, Oily texture and phenolic bitterness suggests some moderate skin contact. A delight with white peach, plums, and kumquat. — 21 days ago
