Oxidative nose was awful. Palate when swirled enough to get the funk out revealed tannic, dried citrus, berry fruit, and herb. I generally love both pax and skin contact whites, but this missed the mark for me personally. Props for experimentation though.

Light orange wine. Touch of root beer tase. Overall floral and fragrant.

I’m not usually seduced by labels but I’m seduced by this one. A fun wine I’ve tried before under the now defunct Wind Gap brand. Fruit and skunk. Pink orange with a sour citrus twist and dank savory green herbs. Texture and viscosity and images of fresh squeezed citrus juice. Bitter blood orange and fennel.

Everything about this says rose and Pax said its ok to call it one. From a technical standpoint its a Trousseau Gris which has undergone carbonic maceration. This grape traditionally makes white wine, but this produced a pink wine which packs a ton more red fruit character than your typical rose. Super interesting wine, but not for those who are caught off guard and expecting a typical rose.

Yep, no mistaking this for anything other than a Pax wine. Carbonic trousseau gris from concrete eggs. The result? Equal parts fresh white wine and skunky orange wine flavors, that kinda functions like an oxidative rosé. Fun stuff.

Deeper pink than typical Rosé, nose is clean with some pear aromas. Light, fruit forward drying out at the end. Pear is offset with some strawberry and ? Light acidity and little if any oak. Nice!
