Kasnyik | Orange Rizling - 2021
Grapes: Rizling Vlašský (Welschriesling)
Process: The grapes were hand-picked from an 8-year-old vineyard at a sugar level of 21.50 NM °. The wine underwent spontaneous fermentation with skins and matured for 8 months on gross lees in used barrels and stainless steel tanks. It was blended together shortly before bottling without the addition of sulfites and left unfiltered.
Flavor profile: Light smokiness dancing with spices, grounded by an earthy undertone adding depth and complexity to the wine.
