Cool wine. Fermented with the skins. Citrus peel, toasted nuts, waxy, honeyed, slightly oxidative, mildly tannic, with nice acid. Fun on its own, but shines with food.

Bright but deep salmon orange in color. Abundant nose of orange rind and terra cotta. Firm acidity supports the medium palate of orange rind, pottery, and brown spices. Soft tannins on the lengthy finish. A classic “orange” wine that’s a perfect foil for heavier “white wine” foods. Roasted chicken, mushroom risotto, game fowl, and root vegetables would compliment nicely. Drink by 2024.

Orange peel, powder sugar, apricot jam, apple sauce, savory minerality. Full malo, 30-day skin contact, 2 years in barrel, rich and delicious. Elevated acidity and drying tannins.

More elegant style of Orange wine. Not much if any VA.. soft, supple but still a bit of grip and acid.
