Studebaker Bianco is one conclusion in a series of experiments in texture and tannin in white wine, a post-punk, post-natural, tangy, minerally, crunchy gargle. The overt green-melon ?fruitiness? of this wine is a pleasant surprise. Texturally it?s a joy. Leaving the wine unfiltered retains viscosity as well as almond blossom aromatics. The ?phenolic?, skinsy crunch (which comes from the fermentation on skins) acts as a kind of picture frame around the wine defining the honeydew and pear flavours complemented by ginger spice confined within these borders.
