Because your passion for orange wine doesn't have to cost you a fortune. The Picofino Moscatel Malvasia, by garage winery Vinessens / Finca Casa Balaguer, is an orange wine made with a blend of Moscatel and Malvasía, certified organic. This wine comes from the region of Alicante in South-East Spain, where Moscatel grapes thrive.
The appearance of is cloudy, with a bright amber colour given by the short skin contact of the grapes during maceration. The aromas are amazing and really show the best of the two grape varieties. I could smell chamomile, apricot, melon, nectarine - I could go on. Very fruity and also a little floral, even slightly funky. Flavours that equally reveal themselves on the palate to but the wine is dry, delicious tannins and rapier acidity, making this a fun, tasty and fantastic value wine.
