ORNG Orange Wine, 2020
Shipped and sold by Trail Estate Winery
50% Riesling, 35% Gewürztraminer and 15% Sauvignon Blanc. The skins were left in contact with the wine for ~8 months — 254 days to be exact.
Fruit was destemmed and fermented naturally in vertical stainless steel tanks. During fermentation the cap was punched down twice daily until it started to weaken. Tanks were then sealed tight for several months. Pressed after ~8 months on skins. Aged in neutral oak for ~2 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with a minute amount of sulphur added (10ppm).
Begins with aromatics of candied oranges and eucalyptus followed by incredibly fresh mushroom on the nose. Well-integrated tannins meet with juicy acidity and deliver a dried apricot finish.
