Fermented and left on the skins in amphora for 120 days, this alluring orange wine offers an array of intriguing aromas including saline, dried yellow stone fruit, baking spice and honey. The vibrant, savory palate continues to open up in the glass, doling out dried apricot, candied orange zest, aromatic herb, tobacco and candied ginger alongside racy acidity. A flinty mineral vein backs up the finish.
