100% Viura, 6 months skin contact.
Absolutely LOVE this wine!!
Viura fans only please, find it, drink it, love it, buy a lil more & stash it. Waxed. Specialz.
If I had another bottled, and chilled.... it would be a special night.
For me, this wine is possibly equated to a Burg-hounds iodine marinated fossilized crustacean shell infused Kimmeridgian fruit forward Chablis (love my Burgundy Blanc’s too)... or something.
More Vintages, Please!
Paired with hickory smoked Salmon.
Note-wise, Ill say it has great fruit, golden, iron-like note, along with a ?peppercorn skin essence? (Essence mixed peppercorn, olfactory, not bitten into), hint of apricot... texture changes with temp (more tannic and rough when cold, smooth round fruit when warmer). Pure enjoyment. Possible almond shell note with age.
Does not state exactly, the length of skin contact. Harvest - bottling on. March 2, 2019. Approx 5-6months (Sept-March). 13% ABV — 3 days ago
Really impressive biodynamic, skin-contact petit manseng from Virginia. I hadn’t anticipated stringing those words together. There’s enough wilder aspects and mouthfeel richness to pair well with funky cheeses, along with a surprisingly bracing run of acidity on the finish. — 10 days ago
