The Phaunus "orange" is all Loureiro, with 8 weeks of skin contact and lees aging in 1,300L clay Talha amphorae from southern Portugal. The wine has nice lift from the natural acidity of the Loureiro grapes, while the maceration and lees aging give it texture and structure. As winemaker Miguel Viseu says, it's a wine "made in silence," with harvest by hand in the early morning, and no electricity used at any point in the process. A truly curious approach with a delicious result. Drink chilled, but not too cold.  

Loureiro is a white wine grape cultivated in the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula (Galicia Spain & Minho Portugal). It is notably cultivated along the Lima River, a sub-region of Vinho Verde This one is made clay amphorae lined with beeswax! A bit of skin contact. Wax. Pear. Slightly cooked. Saline. Green stalk. Long finish. Interesting. 750ml Bottle
