Get The Party Started - Matic - 2020
Aging in wood: Yes
Added S02: Yes
Tasting Notes: This wine is where Matic has let his passion show. The juice and skins are aged together for 200+ days in a clay amfora, just as the ancients did. The wine is bottled unfiltered, direct from the clay vessel to the bottle, and as such presents with a cloudy deep lemon or orange hue. Upon first nose you’ll find apple or even cider notes to this wine. Given time to breathe the nose will open with lemon, orange blossom, honeysuckle notes and after longer even dried roses. On the palate the wine is dry with a fresh streak of acidity. Because of the aging with the grape skins there’s a slight tannic element to this wine, while reminding you of flavors from orange zest, sweet flowers, and green apple. The long finish leaves you with a pleasant dry feeling and remnants of peach. This is what you’ll want to open when you’re ready to start the party. 100% Riesling.
