Channing Daughters Ramato Pinot Grigio 2021
This lovely dry white wine is clean, alluring and focused with loads of personality and a silken mouthfeel. We have often said that Pinot Grigio gets a bad rap from the thin, dilute industrial examples and we are proud to enlighten the naysayer's with a Pinot Grigio of superior character.
Ramato is a special skin-fermented white wine, or what many are now calling an "orange" wine. Ramato refers to the old Friulian-style of fermenting Pinot Grigio on its skins, thus creating a coppery-colored wine(in fact the Italian word “Ramato” refers to the copper color) All the Pinot Grigio fruit (from both our home farm in Bridgehampton and the Mudd West Vineyard on the North Fork) for our Ramato was hand-picked, handled minimally, fermented on its skins (with wild /ambient yeast) in small bins (for sixteen days) and raised in older French and Slovenian oak puncheons (large 500L barrels) for four months.
