Unique orange-style skin contact wine. Needs air and is way better on night 2. Nose has tangy orchard fruit, butter, wildflowers, and minerals. Crisp and flavorful, it’s more like an Oregon Pinot Gris than anything from Germany or Alsace, though, really, it’s its own thing.

Slightly oxidized, with good balance, but not enough acidity to counter the soft ripe fruit.

This is one of the most exciting wines I have had in ages and so totally in my wheelhouse for what I want out of this category that I could stand to have a keg of this on tap in my kitchen. I am tempted to rate this 10/10 as I literally cannot imagine it being more perfect or more satisfying, and am just coming (slightly) more down to earth on account of the fact that I will admit that even the greatest skin contact white wine ever made is maybe not at the level of the 1945 Romanee-Conti. That said, this is the greatest skin contact white wine ever made. It's what they all should be. The level of freshness just knocks your socks off. It's like a Super Bowl Gatorade dunk for the palate. The fruit flavors are succulent and unabashedly delicious - lots of peach, some melon, and unidentified other stuff contributing to the type of tropical refreshment that would make you want to put this in a mai tai glass with a little umbrella in it, and with a texture as sharp and acute as an icicle. The hue at the moment is a luminous salmon - even the color is enticing. It is not "orange wine." My complaint with many skin contact whites is that they pick up their depth and intrigue at the expense of freshness and drinkability. But here there is no tradeoff. This has the freshness of a dozen oysters and the drinkability is off the charts. Guzzling it is more like it.

Opened this with a cod soba noodle dish with miso, cod, eggplant and tomatoes, and it was puurrfect. Think there may have been a little botrytis(?) though the ginseng and chamomile aromas only made the match all the more harmonious. Not sure how I would feel had I tasted it solo, but all aces at the table!

Rose, orange but not oxidized (or at least less than usual). Absolutely delicious. Has the usual suspects of orange wine characteristics, but has amazing fruit and purity to it.
