Donkey & Goat's amazing Stone Crusher is easily California's best "orange wine" (white wine fermented with the skins).
Made with Roussanne grapes (from the Rhone region of France) grown in El Dorado County at the foothills of the Sierras and aged 10 months in neutral French oak, Stone Crusher is refreshing like a white, substantial like a red and yet pairs with all kinds of hard-to-pair-with foods. (Full disclosure: I'm a minor investor in the winery.)
Orange wines are trendy now, but the 2017 vintage is the 8th year Donkey and Goat has been making Stone Crusher.
