If Radikon is right, great orange wines come in 500 ml bottles. This gold-colored skin contact wine smells like sweet apples and tastes like it. Wild yeast. Some light, fading, carbonation. Tart and mild tannins. Reminds me a little of an unblended Belgian lambic. Utterly drinkable.

Yum! Lip smacking maraschino cherries, roses, grapefruit. Sunset pink and semi sparkling.

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!

Fun little off dry orange wine for the hipsters! Like spilling some rose in your cider...

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!
