Rook en Spieels, Waas Semillon 2023

Get to know: Rook en Spieels, Waas Semillon

Tasting Note

This is the kind of Orange wine that would also appeal to white wine drinkers. There's texture from the subtle tannins yes, but it is delightfully drinkable. The nose is fresh with aromas of ripe peach and apricot. The palate builds on this with a creamy texture before the bright acidity freshens up with a pithy finish. Bright modern wine that's perfect for now.

Try this with fried chicken with a rainbow 'slaw.

Kate Says

"If you're looking for an easy way into orange wine, this is a great place to start. It is bright, clean, fruity and fresh while still offering the texture that this style is known for. If you love the Solara Orange wine, this is for you." 

Producer Info

Produced exclusively for Moreno Wines, this wine is naturally fermented and macerated on the skins with daily punch downs to increase flavour and texture, before being put through a basket press. The wine is left to settle in tank before being transferred to concrete eggs and flexcubes (vessels designed to incorporate oxygen in the ageing process with more control and consistency than traditional barrels).
