Affordable orange wine with some great clarity and freshness. Not over the top.

A field blend of Moscatel and Semillon from 80+ year old bush vines on granitic soils, fermented and matured in cement tanks. There is heady peach and orange blossom aromatics on the nose, but the Semillon brings its acerbic citrus pith, clean minerality and tension to restrain the Moscatel. Drink with salt and pepper shrimp with vermicelli and nuac cham.

Clear, straw color. Faint stone fruit & citrus notes. Bright acidity. Smoky aromas that really kick in on the finish. Liquid smoke bomb. Very distinctive,

Can’t get this wine out of my mind. I’m not a wine snob by any means but I do think I have a refined palate in that I appreciate the classics but am not afraid to try new those funky, off the wall wines from smaller producers. This wine speaks to my soul. White wine that has a slightly sweet yet smoky flavor. Everything I want. I need another bottle pronto.

A very light and smooth Chilean white, low acidity with aromas of honeysuckle and pineapple. The smokey palate is very light, hints of citrus, melon and vanilla, a little flabby at the front with improved acidity on the finish. Paired with grilled basil stuffed chicken thighs and asparagus.
