A Roussanne, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Viognier blend called ‘Harlequin’. This wine has been fermented on skins in the tradition of the amphora wines of Georgia – which is colloquially known as Orange Wine. I became enamoured with this style when I took my son Adam to visit what had been my grandfather’s vineyard in the north of Italy and came across the wines of Dario Princic. Orange Wine is all the rage at the moment and I wanted to see whether we could make a wine to compete with that wine that had so impressed me in Italy. I think we have. Textural, spicy and savoury with sufficient depth to carry the phenolic structure – apple, honey and mead come to the fore on the palate, with a hint of elderflower. Spice notes kick in towards the end; the palate is clean fresh and tasty. It is unlike anything I have tasted locally – delicious and different and again very affordable. The wine is best served at cellar temperature and will benefit from air or even a decanting.
