Amoise Gris 2020
Amoise Gris 2020

100% certified organic fruit, macerated and spending almost a month on skins. This is from the Mangatahi Terraces, of higher elevation and a bit cooler and more marginal than the other Hawke’s Bay appellations. The wine is light and fragrant this year, a blood orange colour with the usual hints of pear and ginger spice.

A field-blend, as according to tradition, mostly of Trebbiano grapes together with some Ansonica and Malvasia. On average the wine spends 7 days fermenting on skins, adding complexity and texture Shining lemony rose gold in colour, notes of apple and Bartlett pear, nutty quality on the finish, alongside pure – fresh acidity.” Producer Notes

Dario Princic Bianco NV
Dario Princic Bianco NV

The “Bianco” by Dario Princic is the result of the skillful union of chardonnay, sauvignon and pinot grigio. The grapes undergo a few days of maceration and fermentation in open vats. Subsequently, each variety is left to mature in wooden containers of various sizes and then assembled to achieve ideal harmony. In the Collio district, there is this very ancient soil called Ponka a Calcareous, marl infiltrate with clay very porous, so the roots can seek lots of nutrients in the below substrate. Thus the minerality is dusty, stony and gives sapidity to the wine.

Milan Nestarec TRBLMKR 2017

Milan Nestarec has quickly become the star winemaker of the Czech republic during the time we’ve been working with him. His wines display so much life, vitality, and originality, that they have become very sought after all over the world in a very short time. TRBLMKR is a skin contact white wine, or orange wine, of the Neuburger variety. Like all Nestarec’s wine the grapes are farmed organically or biodynamically. No additives are in this cuvee, the grapes left to naturally ferment for 1 month and bottled without fining or filtering. This wine drinks rather tannic and pours a noticeably amber colored hue, as it ought to.

Monastero Trappiste Vitorchiano Coenobium Ruscum 2018
Monastero Trappiste Vitorchiano Coenobium Ruscum 2018

The Cistercian order of nuns at Monastero Suore Cistercensi, near Vitorchiano in Lazio planted their vineyard in 1963, but it wasn’t until the early 2000s that their wines began to attract more attention, largely due to their employment of the noted winemaking consultant, Giampiero Bea. Made from a blend of Trebbiano, Malvasia, and Verdicchio, Coenobium Ruscum is an “orange” wine, with the pressed juice given extended skin contact, in this case 15 days or more. Fairly light in body given the long skin contact, the wine is scented with mint and herbs; on the palate it has a mouth-filling texture with flavors of baked apple and caramel.

ORSI Vigneto San Vito Sui Lieviti

Skin fermented bubbles!

It is fermented in clay amphora on skins, with a little of the must from the same harvest added to the bottle for the second fermentation. It is aged on its lees and never disgorged. A simple, yet extremely refreshing wine with texture and citrus in spades.

Paolo Bea ARBOREUS 2012
Paolo Bea ARBOREUS 2012

This enchanting wine’s nose bursts with sappy orchard and stone fruits, orange zest, white wildflowers, warm baking spices, honey, bitter almonds, and whiffs of green tea, oxidation, and earth. The surprisingly muscular palate is saturated with dry extract, but lively acidity, silky-fine tannins, and a core of savory minerals keep it supple into its resonant, complex finish. A fantastic complement to a wide range of foods from white meats to hearty seafood to pungent cheeses, Bea’s Arboreus Bianco gets its name from pre-phylloxera old-vine Trebbiano Spoletino rootstock whose vines are trained into tree-like shapes. The wine’s intense flavor comes from its grapes’ fermenting on the skins for 23 days and the wine aging in stainless steel, sitting on its lees, for more than two years before bottling.

Ramon Jane Ovella Negra 2019

From biodynamic estate vineyards of calcareous clay soils. Hand-harvested in small lug bins, sorting in the vineyard, grapes are chilled and pressed. Single fermentation in the bottle with indigenous yeasts and no additions. No SO2 added.

Garnacha Blanca and Malvasia de Sitges. An unusual blend makes this wine stand out, there’s very little of either grape in Penedès. Two weeks of skin contact maceration give an orange appearance, lots of fruit and texture.

Vitalba Albana Romagna Anfora 2018

This is a so-called Orange wine and that means nothing more or less that it is a white wine made from white grapes but whose skins ripen with this wine and the skin contact has been no less than 95 days in Georgian amphora (Kvevri). The great thing about an Orange Wine like this one is that you can taste many red wine characteristics in this orange wine. The color of this “Orange” wine is deep and light orange. The scent is calm yet very complex, with notes of very ripe fruit, candied peel, honey and marzipan. Surprisingly a lot of juice with a very rich aftertaste in which one encounters a lot of ripe stone fruit.
