Skin Contact

Old Westminster

Skin Contact Piquette White Blend

Stems, skins, leftover grape pulp, polyphenols. Gimme all that and more.

This stuff is perfect to be canned and sold to the masses for beach day gallops and picnic frolics.

Intense, supercharged, lychee on Fast & The Furious NOS. Ludacris and The Rock give their blessings on this whip of a drink. Okay, too much.

But this is such a great way to use the byproduct that would normally go to waste and it’s tasty and extremely drinkable.

Sunrise Over Skin Kick On Ranch Vineyard Skin-Contact Riesling 2019

Fuller bodied and delicious, even if it doesn’t really taste like Riesling. Delicate apricot, pear and lemon cream with a pie crust. I’d call it Chenin Blanc blind, with little hesitation. Great texture, medium acid, chalky... really pretty wine. — 2 days ago

Hinterberg Alsace Lieu Dit Pinot Gris

From Alsace, this is a “natural wine”* (non-filtered, no sulfites) actually made from Pinot Gris, but with skin contact creating the rosato color. Really enjoyable, serve it chilled for sure. *Certified Non-Hipster (tm) — 4 hours ago

Akatcha Bourgogne Pinot Beurot

Outstanding white Pinot Beurot by Bize (!) skin contact gives it its color. This is the kind of “natural” wine that I like. I’ll skip the hipster wines, thank you. Alice Feiring club selection. — 2 days ago

“Hipster wines” meaning natural wines that are flawed But people drink them anyway because it satisfies their ego?

Yes, what’s a “hipster wine”? I’d like to avoid them if I can 😄
