SWINGING BRIDGE #003 AMBER FIELD BLEND 2017

0.00

Somebody had to do it... the first orange wine from Orange!  A field blend of the Alsatian varieties Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer, wild fermented, spending four weeks on skins in open top puncheons, and bottled without fining or filtration. Atypical for some styles of orange/skin contact wine, this is super easy to drink, delicious, highly moreish and food friendly, especially with delicate and spicy Asian.

"Almost has a scent of a strong gin and tonic, in the best possible way. Floral, herbal, faint lemon, fresh sweet pear, juniper. Pretty as. The palate is bright and yet textural, layered in flavours of stone fruits, pear, spice, chalk-like mineral character, long and refreshing in its draw across the mouth. Just lovely stuff – addictive drinking here." 93 points, Mike Bennie, www.winefront.com.au
