He said: Light orange or copper color. Very slight ripe (maybe over-ripe) apple aromas when opened, but developed more fruit (especially ripe quince) by the end of the bottle. The taste was just like the bouquet, ripe apples. Quite a lot of crisp acid in the finish. A VERY unique and flavorful Orange wine. After the meal it developed a wonderful tartness and lemon taste in the finish. This is a very unusual wine and I would recommend everyone try an Orange wine at least once, however at $27 I would not recommend it for every-day wine drinking.
She said: The pale orange color immediately suggested that this wine was something special. The aroma was so light I’m not sure it had one. As I sipped it the bouquet and flavor seemed to develop and reminded me of very ripe apples. Light bodied and dry, this wine was somewhat overwhelmed by the garlic in the dinner and was much more enjoyable as a sipping wine after the meal. The dryness and acidity lasted into the medium finish but the flavor did not.
Comments: Just a note on the uniqueness of this wine. The vintage and alcohol content was hand written on the label and the label was signed!!!
