contains one bottle of each:
2021 Orange-Nat, Pét-Nat Sparkling Skin-Fermented White Wine, Sierra Foothills
Orange-Nat is basically the color of the sherbet shell of a creamsicle. It smells sweet and delicate but packs a powerful punch when you take a sip. More flavor, more fun...obvi. It tastes like orange slice candy with fresh and fruity mango, pineapple, and passion fruit. The bubbles are small and crisp, taking fresh to a new level. It’s giving sparkling orange Tang (for the kid in all of us) with a hint of unripe mandarins. It even has bitterness like a Chinotto (the Italian sparkling citrus soda) and the finish lasts for dayssss.
2021 Occhiali da Sole, Skin-Fermented Trousseau Gris, Russian River Valley, Fanucchi-Wood Road Vineyard
This is the best Trousseau Gris we've ever made. Perfect for lounging in the last of the late-summer sun, Occhiali da Sole is a reminder to throw on some rose-colored shades and let all your troubles melt away. The color of a peachy-orange sunset with enticing aromas of rosewater and zesty citrus, this wine draws you in from the moment it hits your glass. On the palate, we get these mouth-watering flavors of lychee, earl grey tea, and a touch of cranberry. The balanced acidity with a slightly textural tannin structure makes this wine an ideal pairing for shellfish, poolside fare, or watching the sun disappear over the horizon.
2021 Love Saves, Skin-Fermented White Wine, San Benito County
Love Saves is like eating a shower peach. What is a shower peach, you ask? Exactly as it sounds: the liberating, sensual, and feel-good experience of eating a peach in the shower and forgetting the mess. Without worrying if you’re going to get sticky, just let the juice flow, and the steam enhances the flavor. The wine itself is super soft, mellow, dry, and packs a fruit punch. Reminiscent of biting into a fruit gusher, you’re in for a tropical fruit explosion of pineapples and mangos intermingled with floral notes of white grapefruit blossoms and chrysanthemum tea.
