Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This Orange wine, made from Sauvignon Blanc, is made like a red wine with skin contact. 'Orange' in this case is more of a medium golden colour. It is showing nutty almond notes on the nose with rich ripe apples tones underneath. Some salinity as well. The palate is dry and tangy, just shy of bitter and reminiscent of a tart, tangy sherry. While not for all, this is one of the better examples of orange wine that I have tasted. If you are a fan or just plain curious about the orange wine rage this is good example at a great price. Pair with tapas. Tasted January 2020. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

An Orange wine is a white wine that has had minimal contact with the grape skin so as to stop the colour saturation process. That being said, treat an Orange wine as you would a white, serve chilled and with food pairings that normally go with white wine. This Spanish Orange, Pomelado, is actually a Sauvignon Blanc and has aromas of citrus and orange. Citrus on the palate with high acidity, leading to a nutty finish. Serve with appetizers, poultry or salads.
From La Mancha Dominio De Punctum Pomelados 2018 is an Orange wine made from Sauvignon Blanc wine grapes that stayed on their skins for up two weeks, much like in making a red wine. Fragrant with citrusy, lemongrass and baking spice flavours on the palate. Lightly chill and enjoy with seafood dishes. - Community Wine Reviews

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
