Offering this 2005 @palminawines Late Harvest Malvasia Bianca “Santita’” Larner Vineyard in Santa Ynez for a dessert special pairing tonight @rusticcanyon with Sous Chef @whennguyenwhen Vietnamese Coffee Semifreddo “Snikers”. I am so impressed with how textured and complex this wine is. So much orange peal, chamomile, honey and a hint of spice. Don’t miss your chances to try it.
Showcasing this beautiful orange wine by Dario Princic today. It’s called Jakot and it’s made with Friulano. “One of the pioneers of the modern skin contact ‘orange’ wine movement, Dario Prinčič crafts his wines in north eastern Italy, near Collio DOC’s town of Oslavia in Friuli-Venezia Giulia (Friuli), bordering Slovenia and sharing many of its winemaking traditions. The vineyards are close to the Julian Alps and the Adriatic sea, the mountains helping protect them from the cold winds of central Europe and the sea moderating the annual temperature variation. These benefit from the continuous cool dry airflow of the Bora wind, retaining freshness and acidity in the grapes and helping to practice organic viticulture. The steep sloped, terraced vineyards have predominantly limestone soils, called ‘ponca’ or ‘flysch’ in local dialect, that layers minerals (friable calcium and limestone marl) from the prehistoric sea bed, clay and sandstone.”
