FIVE STARS 94/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
18.5/20 | Candice Chow for Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
Vinted from an interesting blend of Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Muscat, Gewurztraminer and Chenin, this is a delicious orange wine from the Les Jamelles juggernaut. The palate is light and fresh with citrus and floral notes and a hint of spice. Best served chilled with tapas or Mediterranean cuisine.
Candice Chow writes "Brilliant, pale golden-salmon, even colour throughout. The nose is gentle, filled the glass with aromas of pear, peach interweave, orange zest, orange blossoms, juniper berries and creamy lees. Medium-full bodied, clean and pleasing aromas of peach, pear adorned by orange zest and blossoms, followed by juniper, ginger and red tea fragrance. The palate is textural, enhanced by a soft grip of chewy, skin phenolic extraction, along with creamy lees detail. Balanced acidity carries subtle tea fragrance and spice throughout the palate, lending a lingering finish. This fragranced vin blanc de maceration features clean, ripe fruit of peach and pear, juniper and ginger spice on a textural palate. Match with tapas and pulled pork over the next 3 years."
Sam Kim writes "Complex and enticing, the bouquet shows orange peel, dried flower, anise and almond characters, followed by a weighty palate that’s both refined and expansive. It’s wonderfully complemented by well-pitched acidity and fine discreet tannins, finishing gorgeously long and pleasingly dry."
