100% skin fermented Sauvignon Blanc
Skin to Skin is the first ‘orange wine’ made at Te Aro Wine. 100% whole bunch Sauvignon Blanc it was fermented in 500kg open-top fermenters before being aged in a combination of old oak and stainless steel. It was blended in mid-April and allowed to integrate for two months before being bottled. It is rich, creamy and textural with a balance between elegant acidity and richness from time in barrel.
