2019 Big Table Farm - Pinot Gris (90 pts) @bigtablefarm ℹ️ This wine is 💯 Pinot Gris from Rivenwood Vineyard in the Willamette Valley, Oregon. Pinot Gris, as the name implies, actually has quite a bit of skin color (grayish-blue). They fermented this wine on the skins for ten days that looks more like a rosé than a typical skin contact white wine (aka orange wine). The wine went through complete malolactic fermentation and spent ten months in neutral French oak. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered. 👁 Deep pink-orange color. 👃 Pronounced intensity on the nose. Aromas of Earl Grey tea, rosewater, ripe persimmon, peach skin, candied orange, kumquat, elderflower, and cherry blossom. 👄 The wine is dry, medium acidity, faint tannins, medium alcohol (13%), and medium+ body. A medium length finish of persimmon, Earl Grey tea, and rosewater. 🔔 The best way to describe this wine is a "swanky candle" from a fancy store in liquid form. You know those candles that smell so good you want to try and eat them? Enjoyable floral and herbal flavor profile. The fruit is so concentrated that I thought there might be some residual sugar, but it is bone dry and has some heft to it on the palate. Pinot Gris makes compelling skin contact wines, and anyone that likes this style of wine should check this out. I slightly prefer the 2019 over the 2018. 💰 ~$32 #vin #lovewine #🍷 #wineterroir #wine #orangewine #skincontactwine #orangewineweek #nationalorangewineday #pinotgris #ramato #bigtablefarm
