Crafting a pinpoint precise, squeaky clean wine is one of the most boring things we could possibly think of. We prefer embracing your inner creative, and searching for more radical experiences. This has become one of our most cult-followed wines since we began. It’s not exactly white wine, nor red – many call it Orange or Amber wine…but we just call it Esoterico. Three white varieties left on their skins (much like red wine) – to develop rich aromatics and super zesty, punchy flavours. Being very aware of how drying these wines could be – we specifically sought Zibbibo (for it’s sweeter aromatics and waxy/oily mouthfeel), Fiano (because it’s badass) and Moscato Giallo (for it’s spritely acidity). We make no additions of any kind – save for sulphur when we bottle the wine. There is no fining or filtration involved, with the wine allowed to clarify by gravity alone – resulting in a slight haze and sediment. This is one of the most enjoyable wines to craft, as there was no preconceived idea of what it must taste like – the chief driver is pure drinkability – a ‘scrumptious’ quality – mouthwatering acidity and ‘say hello!’ tannins. It’s a Bohemian at heart. – Unico Zelo
