This one pours as a deep golden orange, a fair bit cloudy. On the nose it has citrus peel and spice blend with baser notes of oatmeal and brown rice.
The palate offers full and dry, grainy tannin make this the red drinkers white, multi layered, rewards time in the glass.
In all, this bridges the gap between something like an oaky chardonnay and the more confronting skin contact whites out there.
