2021 Love Saves, Skin-Contact White Wine, San Benito County
Harvested in September of 2021, these white grapes from Siletto Vineyard were foot-stomped and aged for 8 months with 100% skin contact and 100% malolactic fermentation in neutral French oak barrels (aka BBLs 😜). As a reminder, orange wine is a white wine made just like red wine, which provides more tannin structure and body than most white wines that don't have skin contact. Siletto houses 34 varieties from 5 unique and organically farmed vineyards, planted in earthquake-shaken gravelly loams along the San Benito River and Tres Pinos Creek in San Benito County. Grapes were first established in the rugged landscape of San Benito County by French and German immigrants in the mid-1800s, shaping much of the wine culture as we know it today. Nearby is California's newly established Pinnacles National Park, an ancient volcano and California Condor habitat.
Love Saves is like eating a shower peach. What is a shower peach, you ask? Exactly as it sounds: the liberating, sensual, and feel-good experience of eating a peach in the shower and forgetting the mess. Without worrying if you’re going to get sticky, just let the juice flow, and the steam enhances the flavor. The wine itself is super soft, mellow, dry, and packs a fruit punch. Reminiscent of biting into a fruit gusher, you’re in for a tropical fruit explosion of pineapples and mangos intermingled with floral notes of white grapefruit blossoms and chrysanthemum tea.
