Tasting Notes
Minimum intervention and extended aging in amphora result in outstanding aroma. Grapefruit and orange bitters leap out of the glass, followed by an intriguing dry and complex palate. Subtle tannin adds texture and complexity to this aromatic and food-friendly wine. Naturally vegan friendly and gluten free.

On its own it's very hard to drink but compared with Cheese oh my word the taste completely changes and mind blowing. Perfect with a charcuterie board!

I love this wine. I've never found anything like it. Hints of orange peel. I love this on its own, almost as an aperitif. Even better with cheese.
