Skins Ferment Wild Sauvignon Blanc
This wine is wild fermented for 60 days on its grape skins, and some stems, then pressed off to spend 8 months in old barrels before its bottled unfiltered. If you are lucky enough to set your nose and lips on it you will get aromas of fennel, jalepeno, aniseed, and a grassy citrus pallet with fantastical length.
The result is a wine of cloudy complexion and subtle complexity, with harmonious characters of citrus, herbs and spice that provide remarkable interest and a sophisticated complement to food. A superbly elegant example of this on-skins style, the Mystical Being a must try for lovers of lo-fi and orange wine.
