TN: 2015 Enfield Wine Co. White Wine "on Skins" Brosseau Vineyard

2015 Enfield Wine Co. White Wine “on Skins” Brosseau Vineyard - USA, California, Central Coast, Chalone (6/27/2017)
If John Lockwood makes it, I will try it, even in genres that I do not normally pursue. This is an interesting wine, blending varieties, with the skin contact adding significant depth to white wine character, rather than picking up red wine character as happens with some “orange” wines. Dried pineapple, peach skin and a fresh straw/hay element make for an interesting aromatic tableau. There is a richness on the palate, verging on a glyceral texture, and it carries the depth and weight to the back end, where some skin contact tannin kicks in, as well as a bit of tartness which results in a very clean finish. I tried this at a range of temperatures, and it seemed to show best several degrees below room temp, say 65 degrees or so.
