Rachis & Derma - 2019 Skin-Fermented Chardonnay
A newer label to the Niagara Region, Rachis & Derma, which means skin & bones, is a natural wine label by the team at Hidden Bench Estates in the Beamsville Twenty Valley wine region. Produced from organically grown estate Chardonnay, which was skin fermented and macerated for 45 days, transfered to neutral oak for 6 months, then bottled with lees. A wonderful venture into the orange wine category with beautiful flower notes and marmalade tannins. A great pairing with middle eastern spices.
The 2019 Rachis & Derma Chardonnay lures you in with its beautifull honey, golden hue. Aromatics of orange blossom and peach. This wine bottled with lees, has beautiful tannin structure on the palate with hints of marmalade on the palate. This wine is best enjoyed in its youth.
