2022 Tinto Amorio Bheeyo Skin Contact Wine
Emerging from the diverse landscapes of California, the 2022 Tinto Amorio Bheeyo Skin Contact Wine is a harmonious blend that mirrors the state's rich tapestry of terroirs. Meticulously hand-harvested, this captivating blend combines the aromatic Gewurztraminer from Paso Robles with a touch of robust Zinfandel from Mendocino. This marriage showcases Tinto Amorio's commitment to both innovative winemaking and sustainability, with both varietals being organically cultivated.
Nose: The wine opens with an aromatic bouquet, with dominant notes of lychee, rose petals, and a touch of tropical fruits, characteristic of the Gewurztraminer. The Zinfandel adds layers of ripe red berries, a hint of spice, and a touch of dried herbs, creating an inviting and complex aroma profile.
Palate: On the palate, this skin-contact wine is an explosion of flavors. The Gewurztraminer brings forth flavors of passionfruit, guava, and a spicy undertone, reminiscent of ginger and cloves. The Zinfandel, although minimal in percentage, brings depth and structure to the wine with its flavors of black cherry, bramble, and a touch of white pepper.
Finish: The wine concludes on a prolonged note, with the Gewurztraminer's tropical and floral notes slowly giving way to the Zinfandel's spicier undertones, resulting in a balanced and unforgettable finish.
The 2022 Tinto Amorio Bheeyo offers a broad pairing spectrum. It pairs splendidly with Asian cuisine, especially dishes with a hint of sweetness or spice, such as Thai curries or Vietnamese spring rolls. The wine's aromatic profile also complements grilled poultry or fish marinated in citrusy or herbal sauces. For a more rustic pairing, consider hearty stews or barbecued ribs, where the Zinfandel component can shine.
