Nutty, eucalyptus, rotting pear, the smell of a forest after a rain. Unbelievable.

Amazing wine. Excellent acidity and moderately oxidized; bright, complex, fun.

Starts with the typically refreshing taste of a Sancerre wine before the maceration hits with more complex flavours.

Has this rich orange wine feel to it. The size of the wine matches the personality of sauv blanc and I can at least get behind the style. This is not for me. Holds a nice balance between late harvest richness and dancing liveliness. Giving an unbiased rating because this is done well even if not really for my taste.

From Jeroboam. Odd aromas of hay, cheese rind, lemon, wild fermented fruit.
