Deep amber hue. Dried apricot, orange marmalade, roasted hazelnut, almond skin, marmite on the nose. Lightly sweet with balancing acidity, frothy, stewed strawberry and rhubarb, cloves, pear cider. Delightfully weird, not something to drink all night but very fun to sip. Absolutely perfect with Chinese food!

2016 vintage. Good balance of Brett and non-Brett derived flavors (coming from someone that usually HATES Brett). Hibiscus, green tea, pumpkin seed, tangerine, dried apple, all with underlying foot taste. Actually shows much more complexity and subtlety than most "natural wines" that I've had...but still gets points off for obvious Brett flaw.

Oddball but kind of delicious. Orange wine, orange flavors. Slight sparkle. Fennel and other herbal notes. Hint of baby aspirin.

Awesome! A bit if sweetness, a bit of funk, a bit if fizz. What is it? Some sort of cider? Nope, Greek sparkling orange wine!

pleasantly strange. pine tar, thyme, sweet orange blossom. seemingly sweet on the fore palate, underlying acidity makes the wine surprisingly delicious with salty, bright seafood (octopus tagine, in this case).

Greek pet nat made from 100% Debina (Highly localized, high-acid Greek variety making light, fresh and digestible wines. —- Jancis Robinson). Tastes like cider sparkler. Fennel, wild herbs, fino sherry (acetaldehyde), medicinal notes on the finish. Highly acidic and light bodied at 10.5%. Off dry. Fun to taste.
