2021 Close EncountersClose Encounters Orange Wine
Visually stunning. The 2021 Close Encounters is the color of the perfect orange amber sunset dropping into the distant horizon.
Stemming all from the legendary Brosseau Vineyard, the 2021 Close Encounters is an aromatic mosaic of melon, tamarind, florist greenhouse, rocky earth, scotch bonnet pepper, and grounding sweet potato.
On the palate the flavors of the 2021 Close Encounters are incredibly playful on top of a canvas of serious substance. This wine is where wilderness meets a fantasy metropolis. Its medium body has waves of complexity perked up by bright acid and a long luscious finish that goes in and out with each exhale.
This wine feels like it is written in a beautiful, yet unknown language that was made to communicate with extraterrestrial life.
