ABOUT THIS WINE
An exotic foray into orange wine, this refreshingly clean example has a mouthfeel that lends itself to Chardonnay drinkers looking for something a little different. Dried apricot and red pear on the nose, bruised apple and rose hip shine on an entry that achieves stunning depth with a weight that comes from sur lie aging. A silky finish is accentuated by a light tannin element with touches of fennel and spearmint.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:
