2019 Miscreant, Finger Lakes, NY
A perfect blend of subtle citrus fruity sweetness and dryness. This white is versatile, flavorful and juicy. The extended contact of skin components (tannins, phenolics and skin pigments) during wine production generally produces a darker, slightly orange hue to the wine and also affects the flavor profile. A white that drinks like a red.
Tart aromas of orange marmalade are balanced with sweeter hints of bruised papaya and vanilla. The rounder body of this wine is offset by its playful hints of acidity and enhanced even more by its sultry notes of passionfruit tea and Shiso leaf. A 50-50 blend of Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay, two weeks co-fermented on the skins.
