An orange beauty here with floral aromatics. Lots of peach on the palate with a soft earthiness on the finish. Orange peel and a touch of honey in a cloudy glass for drinking now. Great entry level, skin contact white from a stellar producer.

Cloudy pale to mid gold in colour. A skins contact, white wine fermented in Clay Amphora in Sicily. Aromas of apricot, orange blossom and a little white pepper. On the palate a lot going on - full flavoured at only 12.0% alcohol and low acid - apricots and cumquat with the skins bitterness to finish off. Unique and an absolute mouthful of flavour. Canโ€™t see any reason for cellaring it.

Loving the new vintage - all floral on the nose but then bruised apples, chamomile, rocks...some showing of skin contact but not overwhelming - just right ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Nose of dried flowers, fino sherry and green tea. Notes of cider and autolysis detract just a bit- as they make the wine seem simple (which it isnโ€™t)- but Iโ€™m sure the natural wine hive mind will disagree on that point. Still, quite saline, focused and super long. Imagine a few years of aging will bring added weight and richness. #occhipinti #sicily

Mid Gold in colour, looking way older than it actually is. Strong aromas of Apricot and to a lesser extent honeysuckle and White flowers. An unctuous flavoursome full bodied palate exhibiting great texture and intensity with the Apricot coming through. Finishes Dry. Delicious and different. Will purchase more. Muscat of Alexandria also known as Zibibbo in Sicily.

Wildly intoxicating notes of verbena, magnolias and stone fruit. This is awesome.
