Long Island “orange” wine

Channing Daughters 2008 "Ramato"
Pinot Grigio, Long Island, NY (12%)
This “orange” wine is made by fermenting the white grapes with extended skin contact, resulting in a rich coppery hue and thick texture. (Ramato is auburn or copper in Italian.) Oak aging adds additional oxidized complexity. Told friends we were having Pinot Grigio, then sprung this. A bit disorienting at first, with the burnt orange peel, apricot and bitter-edged nut flavors, but with semi-hard and pungent cheeses, it won everyone over.
