Apricot, verbena, orange blossom, and a bit nutty.
Orange wine that’s fresh and fruity rather than funky. Apricot, green tea, verbena, guava, and a lightly nutty nose. A palate of lemon and orange blossom finishes with bruised peach and star fruit.
Pronounced like Keanu Croochi. It’s 100% Malvasia which is a naturally aromatic grape great for orange wine making. After a month of maceration, the wine comes off the skins, then spends 6 months in amphorae. It is only lightly filtered through gravity and little sulfur is used.
