2017 Ruggabellus Solumodo
Skin-fermented, mostly. One of Australia’s most compelling and serious orange wines. Set the carnival fun juice aside and step into the rarified air. Wow.
Chalky, strong orange wine of intensity and yet decidedly fresh. Mixed citrus, green apple, juicy then very tight and lean to finish, but the length is incredible as is intensity and drive. Chalky-powdery tannins, bright, crystalline acidity. Just bloody awesome wine. Ginger lemon twist to close. Superb.
