This is really fun and really good. Great texture and mouthfeel. Lots of skin contact but not annoyingly so. — 3 days ago

Soliste Cellars

St. Andelain Sauvignon Blanc 2012

One of my favorite Cali Sauv Blancs and Soliste’s tribute to Dagueneau. Some skin contact, acidity and nice lemon/citrus profile. Aged in the signature cigar barrels shown on the label. Lacking some of the minerality of a DD wine, but nicely done overall. — 14 days ago

Gorgeous and golden. Skin fermented for 101 days in concrete. Nice texture, not overly fruity, but tropical notes. This is a fantastic mid-priced Chardonnay from the Sonoma side of Carneros. — 18 days ago

Domaine Antoine-Marie Arena

Hauts de Carco Maceration Malvasia 2014

True beauty orange wine. Like the color is REALLY orange! Which I believe is from skin contact and not oxidation. It’s Malvasia so floral and a little sweet. Another Corsican wine like no other. — 15 days ago

*Heavenly* reminds me of drinking soda in the best way possible. Complex but light, fruity but more tart than sweet also fizzy but no bubbly component — 20 days ago

Natural wine from Chile?! Reminds me of Occhipinti's SP68 white which makes sense because it's the same grape. Amazing bitter quality that both adds texture and balances the aggressive perfume and orange peel aroma. Not really a full on orange wine but enough skin contact to put it into it's on category of weird and delicious. — 16 days ago
