When we showed this wine at the Oxford Wine Festival in 2016 it got everyone talking and we promptly sold out. Made in a low-intervention way the grapes are crushed, put in large open-top terracotta amphorae to ferment with the grape skins ('skin contact', which gives this kind of wine some colour hence, 'orange wine'), and bottled un-fined and un-filtered, with minimal sulphur added. The result is a strikingly floral, complex nose, with notes of tea leaf, smoke, apricot and grapes. It is bone dry on the palate, with a touch of tannin.
As a staff team, we love this wine and are not at all surprised the website of world renowned wine critic, Jancis Robinson, gave it a glowing review. We're delighted to be able to offer this to the good folk of Oxfordshire and beyond.

||Excellent to sip on it's own. It's texture and structure mean it will work well with food, and we suggest light fish or poultry dishes, delicate salads, or lightly flavoured aromatic dishes.|
