Field Recordings 2020 Skins Orange Wine, Central Coast
Whether or not you want a wine that doubles as a conversation piece, you will be more than pleased that you picked up this orange-ish white blend made from Chenin Blanc, Pinot Gris and Riesling. How does it get that color? The grapes are de-stemmed and fermented along with their skins for anywhere from 72 hours to 29 days. The skins give the wine the gorgeous color, with Pinot Gris boasting that orange hue. Interesting and cool as that may be, it's gotta taste amazing to make our cut, and it more than delivers! We got apricot and a bit of mandarin orange zest, a slight lovely tincture and a hint of marzipan. We sipped this with a Moroccan lentil soup and it was stunning, but it's even better with cheese puffs and the Sunday crossword. *Vegan, Organic/biodynamically grown, Native Yeast, Minimal Intervention.
