Dlúhé Grefty, Alba Rosales
A skinsy, orange wine made of Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer. Tatses like ripe yellow peaches, floral notes, soft, gentle grip with great vibrancy and pure fruit character. Very drinkable, yet got good complexity and a long, lingering finish. Totally f*cking delicious!
Grapes: Pinot Gris & Gewürztraminer
Place: Morovia, Czech Republic
