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.
Quinine/gin and tonic notes, with the Gewurz leading the aromatic charge, super seductive, musky and lifted. Lovely natural fruit tannin in the mouth, though everything in moreish balance.
