Winemaking Notes: Fruit is picked by hand from organically farmed vineyards. Skin macerated Sauvignon Blanc and direct pressed Syrah ferment spontaneously with indigenous yeast. The Mis en Bec Blanc is aged in neutral barrels and bottled without fining or filtration and with no added SO2.
Tasting Notes: The nose shows apricot marmalade with a hay element. High toned upon entry, then this orange wine voluminously sprawls out across the tongue with good density. Tempered tropical flavors leaning towards stone fruit preserves show on the palate. The finish is savory reminiscent to aromatic lemongrass pho broth.
