Hazy gold. Yellow apples, cement, and pottery on the nose and palate. Medium plus tannins and bright firm acidity along with some frizzante bubbles. You want to appreciate Cornelissen? Here’s a great start if you can find it.

2013 vintage past it’s prime or just plain flawed. Not sure what to make of this even within the world of natural wines and orange wines, and I’m not new to the game. I’ll chalk it up to over the hill on this bottle and move on.

Munjebel Terre Siciliane Bianco 2015 by Frank Cornelissen, with local grapes like Carricane and Grecanico this is a very fresh white wine like Strohmeier, 2Naturkinder, Stol’n by TR and other organic wines we really like. This one is less mineral more fruity and lacked a bit acidity for seafood, but really pleasant as aperitive. Some star fruit on palate

10 day maceration. Fruit and fresh good zippy acid and musky citrus peel

Drink 11/14-5/15 but then wait a couple years says Frank and Zev

Have been hanging on to this one for a while, probably a mistake.

In a good place once again, 3rd and last bottle was great this time around, deeply colored, cloudy haze as expected, with peach, mineral ash, and white florals.

Orange wine, completely opaque in color and clarity. Maybe it was just me but I enjoyed this a lot more 2 years ago. However, plenty going on here with slight oxidized aromas, high acidity, zesty lemon and grapefruit rinds, loads of minerality. After about an hour the aroma turned to dry cigarette tobacco.
