Left Foot Charley - Pinot Gris Skin Fermented, Tale Feathers Vineyard Old Mission Peninsula 2019Bonhomie
This is a ridiculous proposition yet it is so perfect for this grape. This was a one ton experiment led up by LFC Cellar Master, Wes. He suggested pushing the envelope on the skin contact in an archaically traditional yet fundamentally progressive manner.
The skins absolutely dominate the aromas and palate. It has tea-like qualities with a striking earthy spice. This is not your traditional white wine. Think of it more like a light red wine.
