Bisamratten Skin-fermented Muscat 2021
Winemaker Matthew Rorick started Forlorn Hope in 2005 having inherited from his grandfather a love of wine’s central place at the dinner table between friends and family. Forlorn Hope wines are “honest and pure representations of the site and variety” vinified with just as much respect and care as is shown to vineyard that the individual wine reflects. There are no chemical adjustments, additives, yeast, or bacteria; and there is no new oak allowed in the winery. This orange wine has grippy tannins with notes of Grand Mariner on the nose and tastes like lychee, cucumber and honeydew melon.
