Valli - 'Real McCoy' Orange Wine 2019Regular price $39.00 Save $-39.00
Vintage 2019 marks the 5th release of a “skins ferment” Pinot Gris from the Gibbston Vineyard. Once again, the combination of this versatile variety with our modern take on an ancient winemaking technique and this beautifully fragrant subregion is a winning one.
The colour of the wine comes from the grape skins and the semi-oxidative handling. The 2019 Real McCoy has a brilliant, peachy/tangerine hue. The nose is laden with stone-fruit aromas (apricot and peach) with lychee, orange blossom and rose petals. On the palate there is almond, Turkish delight, apricot and cream soda. The fine tannin gives the wine both depth and length while the fresh acidity sings loudly of Gibbston. Delicious on its own, the Real McCoy invites many opportunities for food pairing including charcuterie platters, pork roast, risotto, grilled salmon, Chinese, Lebanese and Japanese cuisines, hard cheeses and a Kiwi classic – fish and chips.
