Therianthropy Mouflon Viognier Riesling 2019

Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaThis, their first orange wine, was an experiment, and a worthy one at that. From St. David's Bench and Twenty Mile Bench, this is a blend of cofermented viognier, riesling, and marsanne, native fermented in egg, where it was left on skins and stems for 5 months. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered, and topped with a recyclable and renewable plant-based cork, sealed with a beeswax button. Grippy and intense, this hazy orange-hued wine beams astringent apricot, bergamot, peach blossom, on a tight palate. The finish is rinsed with bitter orange, and mouthwatering salinity. A very tasty orange, well make and whistle clean, and a lovely addition to an already very interesting range of wines.Tasted: 14 December 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 40.00 winery direct Producer: TherianthropyDistributors: The Living Vine
