Domaine De La Pinte, Arbois Savagnin Pourquoi Pas? 2015
Inspired by the Georgian Orange wines. An unfiltered and unfined Amber/Orange wine from Jura, made from 100% Savagnin. Skin contact for three weeks. Unfiltered, unfined and no SO2 added before being bottled.
Slightly cloudy, textural, with tropical fruit, stonefruit, spice aromas, lots of ginger, asian herbs and spices, nice racy acidity, light firm tannins, and a long finish. A wine that is great served cold and interesting to leave to warm to see it develop more. This is a great example of Orange wine to introduce to the uninitiated.
