Drueskall | Johan Vineyards

Drueskall means grape skin in Norwegian- a reference to the skin contact used to craft this Pinot Gris. Skin contact ranges from 10-30 days, giving the wine a beauitful salmon/copper colour. The resulting wine has notes of tangerine and spice, and just enough tannin to give it nice structure. Fresh, lively and balanced.
