In a world where skin contact whites seem to be vying for the title of orangest, haziest, apricottyest, the elegance and grace in this wine are a reminder of the possibilities. Aged on the skins in amphora, the result is a bright, orchard and citrus mountain stream with an amazing texture that never once makes you think orange wine. From magnum, which seems to me to be the right serving size for two.

These wines just make you smile. I dare you sip this and frown. Layers of depth and intriguing earth tones, long finish that leaves the warm honey sensation in the back of your mouth. Fresh white fruit, apricots and orange blossoms. Earth is sensational and reminds you of wet granite and soft Indian spices. Makes you so happy.

Muted, slightly reductive opening. Led into white flower, ripe grapefruit, lychee, lemon pith, pink salt. Rounded weight and finessed minerality with subtle smoke.

Waxy lemon and very crushed chalk mineral, very ripe pear, great depth. Tight but very fresh and elegant mineral driven beauty

Stunning hints of honeysuckle and pear. Waxy, but acidity to keep it fresh and long.
