A perfect framing of fruit and skin and acid, this screams out for the perfect food match. It's a mouthful of orange fruit and orange rind, with lemony highlights and impressive power. It resonates from start to finish, adding notes of herbal tea and orange liqueur as it rolls through a long finish. Outstanding winemaking.
