Tasting Notes

A solid fortress of baked apple and apricot, dried leaves, and chicken broth, this is an onion-skin colored wine. Firm grape tannins, with complex, structured acidity. Allow to breathe and serve with seared fish fillets, vegetable tempura, or on its own. Orange wine.

Staff Pick Notes

It's midday and we find ourselves at a long table for a banquet. The sky is blue and the sun is warm. Behind us is an elaborate stone building, ahead is a slow sloping expanse of land that tapers at an infinitely small point in the distance: olive trees, orange trees, a moving flock of sheep. You're overcome with the soothing weight of a relaxation you have never known, the leisure of a clear mind, and an ability to be present in the enjoyment. You don't know where your phone is. It doesn't matter. The smell of spices from your plate intoxicates while you first enjoy a perfectly ripe apricot. In your cup? A full-flavored orange wine called Praruar propelling sophisticated aromas of dried quince tempered by a savory edge. Recommended for medieval cosplay or losing yourself in old world delight.
