An eclectic blend of Muscat d’Alessandria, Riesling and Bianco d’Alessano left on their skins for eight days, giving a delicious cloudy orange wine. It has a textured, waxy mouthfeel of ginger, orange and citrus, and ripe tannins. One for the adventurous.
Winemaker's Notes: "We've had a desire to create a wine like this for some time. In representation of a winemaking style that has existed for many millennia out of countries like Georgia, and influenced the styles of winemaking seen in Friuli, Sicily and Pantelleria. It's not exactly white wine, nor red - many call it Orange or Amber wine...but we like to call is Esoterico. We make no additions of any kind - save for sulphur when we bottle the wine. There is no fining or filtration involved, with the wine allowed to clarify by gravity alone - resulting in a slight haze and sediment. This was one of the most enjoyable wines to craft, as there was no preconceived idea of what it must taste like - the chief driver was drinkability."
