Tasting Notes

An aromatic, orange wine made from the Muscat of Alexandria grape. The juice has five days of skin contact in stainless steel tank and undergoes spontaneous fermentation. A light golden color in the glass, with exotic aromas of tropical fruit that carry to the palate. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal added sulphites.

Staff Pick Notes

This is not your typical orange wine for the Williamsburg peeps. With only five days of skin contact, the color of this Muscat of Alexandria matches that of an ordinary white wine. On the nose, the aromas are extremely developed, with notes of lily flower and orange blossom. The palate is more challenging, with green elements coming into mix, like oxidation and fresh grass flavors. Garalis is located on the island of Limnos, a small volcanic island where Limnio grape and Muscat of Alexandria are cultivated. Naturally organic, Garalis' approach to wine making is "hands-off," using nothing other than grapes and sulfites at bottling.
