Christina | Skin Contact Chardonnay
Skin-contact with Austrian wine royalty
Buttercream, kumquat toast, and orange peel. There is a hint of baked apple and soft baking spice too – this wine is the brilliance of defining your own style. An extraordinary expression of Chardonnay that was left on the skins (hence the ‘skin-contact’) for 18 days, while the wine extracted all the gorgeous color and fruity tannins from those skins. It’s spontaneously fermented with native yeasts, so the wine stays fresh and alive, with a touch of a lift, not quite a fizz, on the tongue.
