A special cuvée made exclusively for my Swedish friends & importers Wine Waves – Pontus asked me for some juicy, zesty skin-contact wine, and Oragech was the answer.
Blend of Pinot Blanc (elegance and structure), Sauvignon Blanc for that zesty juice, and a bit of Pálava and Tramín that add their aromatic tang. Hand-picked in 2020 on our Achtele and Slovenské vineyards, gently destemmed and crushed, left 5-7 days on skins to get that subtle hint of orangeness in both colour and flavour. Some 10 months in stainless steel tanks, bottled without fining, filter or sulfur.
