New Orange

The first hands-on orange wine by Ryan Opaz and second by the Quevedo’s team resulted in a lovely and surprising wine. Our Orange wine was made to be your food companion, dry like a red wine, full bodied, smooth and tight tannins, and a complex and very long aromatic finish! For those who enjoy old-fashined winemaking.

TASTING NOTES

Colour

Deep bright amber of medium saturation

AROMA

Elegant aromas with, shy at first but builds over time with flint stone, earthy, ripe apples and spring flowers scents.

PALATE

Full-bodied for a white wine but not surprising for an orange wine. Sharp acidity with perfect tannins, this wine has bite! The flavours are present from the beginning with honey suckle and ripe apples emerging and enhancing the experience. This orchestra lingers on the palate making your palate salivate and asking for more!
