Orange Wine, amber wine, skin contact wine, whatever you call it, white wine made like red wine by fermenting it on its skins is a blast! This pack burns brighter than a Serengeti Sunset and reflects three of our current favourites of this wine style that reward time in glass and a plate of fatty good things!
2021 Somos 'Naranjito' Verdelho McLaren Vale, SA
100% biodynamically-farmed, unfined and unfiltered Verdelho. It’s spicy, citrusy and rich but with a fresh frame that keeps everything together. One of the best value oranges we’ve seen in a while. Summer in a glass.
NV Domaine Rohrer 'Esch Hab Di Garn!' Alsace, FRA
‘Esch Hab Di Garn’ meaning ‘I love you’ in Alsatian. This is a multi-vintages blend of Gewurztraminer, Auxerrois, Sylvaner (with skin contact) and a little Riesling and Muscat. Fresh and lively, with ripe pear notes leading a complex, mineral wine.
2021 Boomtown 'Amber' Fiano/Riesling/Vermentino Central Victoria, VIC
The perfect answer to a request for hot day hydration. For us, ice cold textural skin contact whites make more sense than anything on a stinking hot day. And with an ice cube? It's your call... Another impressive release from Tim Sproal at Boomtown.
