Although not really an "orange wine", skin contact gives this wine depth and uniqueness. Aromatics of florals, stone fruit, melon and salt provide great freshness alongside a lush mouthfeel. Although great to drink now, this wine also has aging potential.

"I was lucky to try a vertical of this wine (2014, 2015, 2017 & 2018) and tasted its evolution. Orange peel was the first thing that came to mind. Like all white wines the fruit withered away with time so drink within 4 years unless you are looking for some bottled aged complexity. A perfect substitute for a hot day when you aren't feeling rosé!"
