Wow this is interesting, it sounds terrific!

I take it this wine went through MLF?

Also what's the aging potential on this?

I just heard about that recently. Its a new trend on aging whites. So I'm curious to try, anyone want to split this?

Looking forward to fielding questions from you wooters on the Big Orange. It's white grapes made in the style of red wines. Sounds odd - tastes great.

This is a great/unique product and we are proud to offer it exclusively here on wine.woot! I'll be available for questions for a bit tonight and throughout the day tomorrow...

Would love to see rattage on this. Even SWMBO is interested in the concept, but asks, "What if we don't like it?"

-- Yes, as with red wine production, it is 100% MLF. Aging potential is excellent. Aging is in fact recommended. You will notice a hint of tannin-like structure to the wine. That will help it age over time. This method of winemaking was employed in the Alpine Foothills in previous centuries to in fact improve the age-worthiness of those wines...

Descriptions sounds fascinating! Is this dry, or has some sweetness? I've never seen an orange wine that wasn't sweet

This is a product launch, not available on their website. You must be looking at the other wines under the Crusher label.

I, too, am curious if this is dry, sweet, or in between. I don't see any RS listings, so I'm assuming dry but..

I'm also interested in an aging window for this unique beast.

Also wondering if I'd want to decant longer due to the higher amount of structure etc.

Sounds complex and delicious. I don't think I can resist.

-- Sorry I don't have lab numbers on me right now... but this wine is basically dry. It has elevated RS at/near threshhold (where you could taste it) but it is balanced by - or perhaps balances - the tannin structure the wine gets from its time fermenting with the seeds and skins.

-- Yes, definitely decant. But personally, I think approx 99% of all wines benefit from a good one hour decanting. Also, serve lightly chilled. But not too cold.

Is there anyone in Southern California (Ventura/Los Angeles) That would like to sell me one of theirs? I'll make the drive and pay 1 bottle and your shipping ($20) and pick it up :D

PM me.

Edit: Found Someone to Split with. Thanks anyways. If you'd like to split on future wine it's nice to have a list though. Ventura area would be great for someone closer for next time I might want to split

I would take one bottle or two in San Francisco. I'm leaving on a jet plane early in the morning, so I can't place the order, but feel free to PM me for an email address if you've got an order you'd like to split.

Cheers,
Michael

I've had "orange" wines from Channing Daughters on Long Island, Va La Vineyards in SE Pennsylvania, and a few wines from Friuli in NE Italy. Just as wines from black grapes differ depending upon the grapes used, vinification processes, etc., so it is with wines from white grapes. They're similar but different so if you've had one you haven't had them all. I've got a Georgian Kisi waiting to be opened, too.

Broadly speaking you could say they have characteristics of a lighter-bodied red with noticeable, but less "strident" tannins and of course less depth of color (the common white grapes are relatively thin-skinned). The flavor profile will come from the grapes used though, so imagine your favorite white grape taste with the structure of say a red Burgundy or other cool-climate PInot Noir.

This should be interesting to try. I'm imagining the Viognier taking a big lead on the nose and taste with Chard there for body. Looking forward to trying some of my own.

In for one, naturally. Looking forward to comparing with Long Island, Chester County Pennsylvania, and of course, Friuli Italy.

need to be short tonight, more tomorrow from me on orange wines. I haven't tasted this one ( WD worked magic here), but am thrilled to see this on woot! most "orange wine" I've enjoyed over the years are imports. However, the NPA winery who's famous for their orange wine delivery in Kleen Kanteens to Bay Area restaurants is an auto-buy for me anytime I see it on a wine list. Thinking back, if you enjoyed the Sauv Blanc offering from Old World Winery the year,this offering should also be pleasing to you. texting in from theb tiny iphone, pardon any typos, off to much needed beauty sleep now!
