Flavor & Winemaking: Intense aromas of peach, apricot, dried fruit, apples & potpourri. The flavor has the same characteristics but with a caramel, pastry note as well. The wine finishes dryer than your average “white wine” by virtue of it being a “orange wine” (white grape fermented on skins & aged in barrel like a red wine). Barrel aged in 50% new French & American oak, 20% peach wood, 20% apple wood, & 10% acacia wood for 8 months.
