2018 Sextant 'Po à po' Skin-Contact Aligoté

'Po à Po' is a skin-contact (orange wine) made from 100% Aligoté, one of our favourite and lesser-known Burgundy white wine varietals. 

Here Julien hand-harvested the fruit, split it 50/50 between whole bunches/destemmed and layered it into a stainless steel fermenter to leave fermenting on its skins for 9 days. Pressed off to finish its ferment and be matured matured in aged French oak barriques.

The name is a word play on "peaux à peaux" which is "skin to skin".
