Another wine we’ve fallen in love with this light orange 100% Slovenian Pinot Gris, stunning! Aged in Amfora wine made in Qvevri. It originates in Georgia, The winery was four times selected among the top 100 wineries in the world by the elite American Magazine, Wine & Spirits confirming their passion.
Sexy rust orange color with peach yoghurt on the palate and just enough citrus for an elegant balance of a refined orange wine from Jean Michel Morel & Ales Kristancic.
It is aged for two weeks on the skins and then for about a year in neutral barrels before bottling. Since Pinot Gris is a naturally pink colored grape it has a light rose hue that adds to the already fascinating and inviting flavor profile. It is in the “orange” category of wines but is an easy entry point as the wine is not as intensely powerful as the Rebula or similarly styled skin-contact wines.
