A lovely balance between the floral fruit character of Malvasia and the richer texture that comes from the skin contact. Notes of orange blossom, jasmine, apricots and a lingering papaya finish.

Orange wines are made by leaving white wine on the grape skins for an extended period during the winemaking process. The result is a deeper colour (which gives orange wines their name) and richer characters.
