La Petite Mort 2020 Gentil Qvevri White (Granite Belt)

Editors' Choice

A blend of Gew├╝rztraminer and Muscat, this wine receives 151 days on skins in buried clay qvevri, or clay vessels. While the color evokes cloudy apple juice, the aromas are more like fresh-sliced pineapple or melon with ground ginger, honeysuckle and essence of orange. The palate is slippery but the skins-y elements are surprisingly subtle. There's delicacy and ease, freshness and purity. A delicious drop to snap up if you see it. Christina Pickard
