Trail Estate Winery, Oh Julius Orange 'Nouveau', 2021
A Wild-ferment, Unfiltered and Unsulphured Orange wine: eminently quenchable!
An eclectic mix of aromatics balanced by the varying lengths of time spent on the skins during fermentation. Pear blossom, grapefruit and clementine are followed by soft tannins and refreshing acidity. 59% Riesling, 35% Gewürztraminer & 5% Muscat. A mixture of skins was added to the top of each tank to create a cap and protect the wine for further ageing. Pressed after a couple weeks of further ageing on skins. Settled for a few weeks before bottling straight from tank. Bottled raw with no sulphur or additives.
