Cidery and floral aromas, honeycomb, preserved lemons, va, and impressive concentration. Solid skin contact white but for the price I’ll probably stick to the rossi.

Flan skin-color, wet stone, damp cloth, and petrol odor, grapefruit rind, smarties, yuzu-mint on the mid-palate, super glycerin bomb viscosity and a touch of kool cigarettes in the end...fucking fantastic.

Needed a long decant to really start showing. Too funky for the missus. Dried orange peel, clove, Christmas spice, fungal notes, meyer lemon, hay, tannic/astringent finish. Good with food. Minority interest (pace Robert Christgau)

Orange wine at its peak. Little funk. Citrus

Just enough “funk” for orange wine fans, but not too much that it will put off the “funk averse.” Really excellent dinner wine in general, with nice citrus and acidity.

A beautiful and intense orange wine. Pairs grandly with spicy food.
