The color is a mix of salmon and amber. The nose exudes crushed rock and a basket of fresh fruit. Rich, textured, and savory flavors.

Beautiful salmon color - at cellar temperature the aromas just wake up! Nose of strawberries and crushed rocks. Balanced flavors of bright red fruits and intense structure. Flat out delicious!

Picking more up from UPS on Sat, until then I'm crippled.

One of my favorite whites (really salmon) at the moment, amazing wine to experience.

Spicy, savory, and quite a polarizing wine. I loved its quirkiness, and think there's some exciting food pairing potential..

Orange Chicken demands this wine. It's mid November and I cannot stop drinking lovely whites and rosés. God bless you @William Allen - Two Shepherds !

Five days on skin give this a beautiful pale salmon color. Quince, aniseed, rhubarb, peach pit, and wet gravel are a joy to smell. This wine accompanied chicken Provençal like they were meant for each other. The acidity is enough to make this wine friendly alone, but shines with a meal!

First orange wine we have ever tried and love what William does with this. Orangey pink with medium intensity. Nose started off a little dirty with some candied apples, burnt toast and some petrol. Definitely seems like it has some oak influences. On day two it added in some smoked and savory notes. Bright moderate acidity (7/10) that rounded out on day two with some citrus and tight raspberries. A little dirty too with some hay. Light and crisp body with a little minerality leading into the long finish. Very interesting wine with some beautiful layers. Drink till 2020.
