This is a skin-contact white wine/orange wine. Exciting. Frankly, I love skin contact Pinot Gris. The 2022 The Real McCoy Gibbston Vineyard Pinot Gris spent approximately four weeks on skins (same as the Pinot Noir), and on the nose, it leads with orange oil, beeswax, white/spring flowers, white pepper, star anise, Campari, rosemary, hints of clove and brine. It is super pretty, and soft(!) in the mouth, with lovely fresh acid that wraps around the phenolics. What a lovely wine. It matured in neutral oak for 11 months, with 100% malolactic fermentation. 13.5% alcohol, sealed under screw cap. Erin Larkin, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
