ORANGE features a selection of macerations which invigorate and excite. Offering examples so filigree and fine they could be classified as genre-defying, alongside those with enough flesh and grip to stand up to the most robust of cooking, few wines are as versatile on the table as these.
A blend of Trebbiano, Malvasia, Verdicchio and Pecorino from three parcels of vines young and old. The grapes were fermented on the skins for three weeks before being pressed off to concrete vats for a year of rest. A deep shade of amber, this is heady with ripe citrus, earth and spice, whilst tea-like tannins frame flavours of apricot, minerals and bitter herbs. A wine that makes so much sense alongside the rich cuisine one finds in the hills of the Marche.

TUTTI FRUTTI ANANAS
This wonderfully vibrant wine is made by infusing whole bunches of Vermentino in the fermenting juice of Grenache Blanc for two weeks. After pressing, the wine is transferred to concrete vats for a brief rest. A beautiful, hazy shade of sunset, the fruit is framed with gentle tannin and just the right amount of orange zest and spice.

Bianco G05 2021
A blend of Procanico, Ansonica and Malvasia Toscana from Trish’s old vines, fermented on the skins together for a month, before nine months ageing in a large chestnut cask. A deep amber in the glass, this is a wine of real power and impeccable balance, pairing baked orange, woodsy notes and volcanic minerality to great effect. Impressive now, this will age wonderfully over the coming years.
