Grosgrain 2019 Skin Contact Les Collines Vineyard Sémillon (Walla Walla Valley (WA))

This is a rare example of this variety fermented on skins for 14 days. Aged in a mixture of clay amphora, concrete egg, neutral oak and stainless steel, the aromas are reserved but intriguing, with notes of lime, mineral, clay and herb. Tart, sleek flavors follow, with citrus notes lingering on the finish. The feel and the acidity bring much of the appeal. Pair it with clams in a shallot-wine wine broth. Sean P. Sullivan
