100% Grenache Blanc. This skin macerated, naturally fermented, orange wine is clear and clean, with a firm tannin backbone. Notes of dried orange peel, marzipan, honey, and white flowers. Instead of simply tasting fruit or flowers this wine tastes of bruised apple, pot pouri and candied peel. It has a savory finish which marries well with complex food flavors such as dim sum, sticky pork or even slow roasted lamb and can be served slightly less chilled than a conventional white to allow the oak flavors a chance to express themselves.
This wine is grown from bush vines in decomposed granite soils in a converting organic single-vineyard plot. Natural fermentation lasted for 20 days, at which point the grapes were basket pressed. Twenty percent of the wine was placed in new Russian oak. To be enjoyed up to 7 years from release.
