    December 22, 2019 - Lots of funk on the nose, with a bit of citrus rind and maybe a hint of pine needles? Cranberry, pomegranate and citrus rind up front, giving way to funk (which was quite bitter at first, but mellowed out after some time). Pleasant lingering after the funk passes.

    September 29, 2019 - This was a darker rose color than the previous bottle, cranberry and unrepentant strawberry. No big change on day 2. Reminded me of my Grandpa’s cellar.

    August 2, 2019 - tea, cranberry, overall impression of grapefruit pith, especially on the slightly bitter, long finish.

    February 9, 2019 - Big and roomy between the juicy grapefruit, berry, rind, and seed notes and the balancing honeyd ripeness. Accessible, tasty, and also interesting and thought provoking.

    February 4, 2019 - Natural Wines of the US of A (P&V Wine + Liquor, Newtown, Sydney): A family urban winery based in Berkeley, they have published a 'Natural Wine Manifesto' they are very transparent about all aspects of their winemaking.

    Very much a skin contact wine, this was partially pressed off skins after 2 days and again after 4 days.

    Mostly clear, medium (deep for a Pinot Gris), peachy ruby.
    Medium nose of orange, grapefruit.
    Dry, medium acid, medium (+) alcohol, medium body, medium flavour intensity with grapefruit, tangerine and blood orange peel. There is an attractive savouriness here. Medium (+) length.

    Approximately 30 USD.
