    As long as we got skin contact we are all good here.

    Only ten days contact but it definitly has gotten the job done. Really juicy, mild funk. Pretty much the cheapest orange wine ive found. Very good value.

    Grenache and zin with a little whole cluster maturation so i think we are good here as far as skin contact is concerned.
    Second bottle of this. So so good, strawberry, necterine, very mild funk. Will cop again.

    Good to know you dug it. Bottles of this stuff are pricey, but have been meaning to grab some. Had the grape and pear country wine again last weekend. Always a good one.

    Supprisingly enough this is on the cheaper end of their lineup.

    Long Island's not all that long, right? Go grab a Channing Daughters orange wine and talkskincontact.com in this thread.

    This helps like 3%

    Is it a wine made with oranges?
    A normal white wine that's just thrown on some oranges?
    Pulp? Only skin? When?

    Orange wine is a white wine made like a red wine, that is, the grape juice is fermented with the skins. This process gives the wine an orange color. No fruit besides white grapes are used for this wine.

    After reading the Bon Apetit article linked above, I am in full agreement: It's a dumb fucking name.

    I have a couple bottles of this coming next week - will be interested to try. No picture but I've recently opened Gerard Villet's Cuvee Orange Arbois Chardonnay and Hughes Beguet "Orange Was The Color of Her Dress" Savignan and both were exceptional. I'd highly suggest picking up either if you see them.
