Tasting Notes 

This wine is amber-orange in color due to color extraction from the white grape skinsThat extraction has also helped create aromas of caramel, dried orange rind, anisette and herbs. You will find it has tannins reminiscent of heavily steeped black tea and a citrus zest quality, with subtle flavors of kumquat, lingering brown sugar flavorsand savory notes.  

Winemaking Notes 

The grapes for this wine were all harvested the same day from one vineyard and most was co-fermented for 14 days on the skins before we pressed the wine off of the skins and put it down to barrel to age. We added in a touch of non-skin fermented Marsanne for balance closer to bottling.  

Food Pairing 

Spicy curry dishes pair well orange wines like this one. A rustic cheese and charcuterie board would offer a fun taste exploration. Bacon wrapped figs would make a delicious appetizer with this wine
