Hard to believe this is Pinot Gris, so much color! Ruby red with an orange tinge, very good clarity with some lees sediment. Citrus note in nose, grapefruit and plum notes in mouth with mineral finish. The winemaker gets Italian plum and pomegranate in this, I can see the former. Really different wine, easy to sip but fair amount of skin tannins, maceration here. Good acid, fresh fruity flavors but subtly so — 12 days ago

This wine is deep gold with notable haze and visible lees, due to lack of fining / filtration, which gives this wine great texture and weight.
The extended skin contact contributes not only the color and texture, but the aromatic notes of ripe cantaloupe, honeydew, orange peel, grapefruit pith, also dried orange blossom, freshly cut herbs, wet slate, tomato leaf, and salinity.
Vintage 2019. ABV 13%.
Excited for this delish and versatile, food-friendly wine. — 6 days ago
Got this rec from the Wine Shoppe in Waco, TX when I asked for a funky white - the muscadet grapes are macerated so it’s almost like an orange wine. — a month ago
Skin contact Müller Thurgau Sauvignon Blanc Blend aged in Amphorae.
Cloudy, zesty, salty, fresh. Apricots & underripe mango, salty rocks, a hint of hay.
On the palate lively, zingy, fresh. A bit spicy, with nice purity and a wild edge to it.
Brilliant with food but also v. nice solo. — a month ago
