Love this wine! Winemaker Ann Sperling is a genius. This orange wine is organic and offers seductive aromas of Earl Grey tea, clementine and spices. Dry and medium-bodied. Pair with fermented dishes and cheese, along with roast chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

Julian Park rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This is a wine for beer drinker’s that loves IPA! Make sure the wine is chilled and allowed to open in the glass for at least 30 minutes before drinking. What strikes you first is the cloudy dark orange colour.
Aromas of apricot, apple skins, orange zest and well-steeped Earl Grey tea.
Medium-bodied with a wonderfully textured mouthfeel. Citrus, peach pit, and orchard fruit on the dry and concentrated palate that ends with a slightly bitter and long finish.
A perfect example of how a natural wine can excel!
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I love a skin contact wine like this as a substitute for a beer on a patio during a warm summer afternoon. Aromas of orange peel, bergamot, dried herbs and lemon zest. Dry on the palate, with tea-like tannins, some warm orange and lemon hints, and a spicy finish.

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.

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.
