Deeper & richer in character - what you look for in an Orange Wine
Tasting Notes: Orange wines are made by leaving white wine on the grape skins for an extended period during the winemaking process. The result is a deeper colour (which gives orange wines their name) and richer characters. This wine is a beautiful balance between the floral fruit character of Malvasia and the richer texture that comes from the skin contact, with notes of orange blossom, jasmine, kumquat and apricots.
