Malvasia

75cl * Vegan & Organic* 12.5% ABV * Abruzzo, Italy 

A classic example of 'orange' winemaking, which is when white wine is made in the same way as red wine, ie with lots of extended skin contact during the process. Orange wines like this are usually unfiltered, so please don't be shocked if you find 'bits' floating around in it - they're meant to be there!

Orange wines aren't everyone's cup of tea, but they're certainly gaining popularity, especially amongst the more young and trendy drinkers! This one is full-on fruit with tropical flavours (mango especially, but also kumquat), plus jasmine and apricot balanced with some good structure and pleasant acidity.
