John Schreiner review from June 2015 Orange Pinot Gris 2014 Barrel Sample. 90 points
John Kelly has joined the growing number of leading edge winemakers who produce so-called orange or natural wines.
In this case, the Pinot Gris is fermented on the skins with wild yeast and left on the skins for some time.
The result is a bronze wine with flavours of herbs, grapefruit, and dried orange peel. The wine is quite dry, it begs to be aged.
