From the Winemakers:
“What is an orange rose you ask? We don’t know either. Big Salt “Orange Rose” is nearly a 50/50 blend of ramato style Pinot gris and a co-fermented, skinzy Riesling. The combination of these production methods left us with a wine that doesn’t look or smell like a rose – it isn’t as funky or extracted as an orange wine – it lives somewhere in between.
2019 BSOR is peachy in color, no doubt because the Pinot gris was cranberry red, and Riesling was yellow an orange hue. It’s aromas are earthy – think roasted carrot, ginger, red apple skin. The palate is bracing (Riesling) and packed with citrus and aloe. It has a shocking amount of grip (amphorae) but not quite tannic. It oddly finishes with florals you’d expect from the nose, but it’s in the back palate.
