About him: the splendid Riesling Orange obtained with long macerations of this magnificent grape variety! Brilliant wine, with a bright orange color but a little cloudy because not filtered. The aromas are citric (pink grapefruit and lemon) and with hints of candied fruit. In the mouth you can immediately perceive citrus fruits, especially pink grapefruit, but its creaminess that drives us crazy! It also has a splendid balance during the evolution between acidity and fruit, as well as a nice length on the palate...in short...a wine bomb!!!
