Vino Volta Different Skins 2020


A very elementary version of a skin-contact white. Deep golden yellow in the glass. Some oxidized apple on the nose complemented by pleasant florals. Palate is rich and textural, wtih tons of herbaceousness hitting at first, but the tropical fruit from the Semillon rounds this out nicely. A pretty wine, something to start your orange wine journey with.

Chewy, tight and chalky, lean in a way but great in that respect too. Dried apricot, mandarin, blood orange characters and all of this shot through with a kind of lychee and white pepper character. It’s an intriguing, wonderful, delicious wine of great personality and finesse. So much going on here, excellent stuff.

Garth Cliff spent 20 years making wine across Australia and in the US, with a decade at Houghton before striking out on his own with partner Kristen McGann. While many Western Australian winemakers would feel drawn to the glamour regions like Margaret River, Cliff was most passionate about the deeply unfashionable Swan District. Under the Vino Volta label, Cliff focuses primarily on the region’s strengths, which are Chenin Blanc and Grenache.
