I’m not a fan but it was great to try this Orange wine and I never thought of this super old world style as something new and adventurous to go get some of. Thanks for sharing.

Aromas of burning perfectly dried orange peels, snuffed out with snuffed out a tangerine slice! On the splat things only get more interesting, an old baseball mitt left out in a soaking rain for days, then given a good squeeze to dribble into your glass, poured over more nearly dry orange peels!

Certainly an interesting white. Very nutty and waxy on the nose with an oily, thick body on the palate. A bit short on the finish but an enjoyable quaff no less. Prefer the Chinuri I had a couple of weeks ago.

Yellow Apple, a bit of dried apricot, hay, walnuts, and lots of bay leaf.

really interesting and complex. this wine tends towards non fruit, with a lot of mushroom and damp aromas. its one of those wines where I'm not sure if I love it or not. may need further investigation. long on the finish.
