On the palate, if not for the zippy acidity, this wine could easily be mistaken for a red with such weight, tannin and lingering finish. With honeysuckle, jasmine and baked nectarines that mingle with cinnamon and apricot, you will experience aromas that will entice and excite.

This white (orange) wine will surprise as it spent 16 days on the skins in a 4 ton open top wood vat before we pressed off to complete fermentation in neutral oak barrels. Orange wines, as they are called, are fascinating for many reasons but most exciting for us is the incredible versatility at the table. With chewy tannin and surprising structure this white (orange) wine goes in surprising directions with spice, meat, seafood and an array of fall and winter vegetables (paella, Indian cuisine, tapas, scallops and more).
