Skerk 2020 Ograde

This is a couple single vineyards combined of four varietals aged on their skins for around 15 days. The nose shows blood orange, spiced orange peel, grapefruit flesh, & light baking spice. The palate is moderate in weight with grapefruit, allspice & minerals.  D&M Tasting Notes  A blend of Vitovska, Malvasia, Sauvignon and Pinot Grigio from some of Skerk's best vineyard holdings.

The entire process is natural, not because it is the trendy thing to do, but because it does not make sense to Sandi to make wine any other way. When asked about the style of winemaking that seems to be the trend in the Carso DOC, ie. long skin contact for the whites, Sandi talks about the great respect he has for his grandfather, who also made wine on the family's property, and about wanting to follow his technique. Making wine before it was common to use SO2 as a preservative, Sandi's grandfather used the technique of extended skin contact for his white wines. The tannins in the skins protect the wines from oxidation, allowing Sandi to use very little SO2 in his winemaking. Making wine naturally requires great care in the vineyards and the winery and if there is one thing I have learned about 'natural' wine after attending the two 'natural' wine fairs every year in Italy in March, it is that there is a big difference between 'natural wine' made by great winemakers and 'natural wine' made by any Joe Smoe hoping to jump on the 'natural wine' band wagon. Sandi is one of the great winemakers making natural wine well; his wines show impressive clarity, balance, and depth on the palate. Importer Notes
