Channing Daughters Ramato 2015
A natural orange wine that is exotic but not funky. Ramato is a special skin-fermented white wine from the old Fruilian style of Pinot Grigio fermented on its skins. This small production version from Long Island is hand picked with wild and ambient yeast in small bins and then aged in older French and Slovenian oak for 18 months. Brims with honey, spice, dried apricot and baked apple aromas. Pair with hard cheeses, charcuterie as well as fish, chicken and pork preparations. 588 cases produced. A rare treat and tasty introduction to the world of orange wine.
