Skinsy, whacky Sauv Blanc from amphora!

About the Wine

Sauvignon Blanc is a great variety to experiment with. Winemaker, Jo Perry plays around with it a bit here, pushing this Sauvignon Blanc into the realm of the weird and wonderful.

The fruit is crushed straight into a combination of amphora and open top bins, then left to hang out of skins for a full six weeks before bottling. No fining. No filtration. No adds. Just the awesome raw essence of Sauvignon Blanc.

If you're in the market for crisp dry whites, you may want to look elsewhere. But if funky, textural wines with a wild personality are your thing, this is going to be right up your alley.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Full steam ahead with mango and guava scents, some green pepper and a touch of grass. Soft, silty tannins mesh well with the loud fruits. All this craziness hangs on a thread of acid which keeps the story going in one direction. Great side a Sauv Blanc, here. Interest and drinkability in one. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From the Producer

The one & only orginal SKINNIE is made from Sauvignon Blanc that was hand harvested in the early hours of the morning, crushed directly into amphoras & open bins. Wild fermented, hand plunged daily & left on skins to macerate from 6 weeks up to 5 months. Racked once, to blend & bottle. No additives, finings nor filtration. Only very minimal sulpur at bottling.
