If you have wanted to dip your toe into skin contact wines, Terra Ambera is a great place to start. When we say skin contact, it means that the grape must (crushed grapes with skins, seeds, and sometimes stems) from a light skinned varietal has been allowed to macerate for a period of time. In simple terms, a white wine that is made like a red wine. The longer the maceration, the more intense the effect on the wine. A lighter style, Terra Ambera is a natural, spontaneously-fermented wine made from Muscat of Alexandria and has 5 days of skin contact in stainless steel.
It's light, mouthwatering, and easy to drink on its own or with lighter fare. It's bursting with tropical and orange citrus fruits and white blossoms, held together with an almost lush green finish and a light tannic structure similar to that of unsweetened black iced tea.
