Natalie's Score: 93/100

Muddy Water 2021 is a skin-fermented orange wine and a blend of 67% Riesling, 30% Gewürztraminer, 1% Grüner Veltliner, 1% St-Laurent and 1% Chardonnay from a single vineyard that is certified organic. Half of the grapes were whole bunch fermented for 21 days, so there are some lovely, complex flavours here of fine herbs, lavender, pink florals, tangerine balanced with vibrant acidity and finishing fruity and long. Drink or hold.

Skin Ferment food pairings: salads, quiches, flatbreads.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
