Fun orange wine, 41/37/9/8/5 blend of Chenin Blanc, Pinot Gris, Albariño, Verdelho and Riesling. Looks like cherry skin-colored Rosé with excellent clarity, but these are all white varietals. Complex smear of flavors with a light tannin finish. Don’t think I’ve had anything like it, though that hint of Riesling is the bow on the package. Experimental and lovely. I admire its structure, almost dry, balanced but tannin-forward without excess,

One of the best skin contact wines I’ve ever had. Orange blossoms, stone fruit and citrus. Interesting. #orangewine #skincontact #pasorobleswine

Skin contact orange wine with funky farmhouse cider vibes. Stone fruit, orange pith, herbal tea undertones. Bigger body than expected, M acid, with some tannin on the back end

Fantastic to see an Orange at the price point, onion skin copper color, more textural than fruit notes, but fruit notes in an apricot direction.
