Orange Wine

Not Ready for Pink. Let's Do Orange.
From Haloze Belo 2016


Eric Asimov talked Orange Wines on Wednesday in NYT.
"They have been hailed as innovative expressions, 
and damned as flawed, oxidized, repetitive and dull. 
Both the praise and criticism have been well earned. Some orange wines are in fact insipid. People tire of them quickly when the novelty disappears. But why would it be surprising to find bad examples of any type of wine."

Bottom Line: You need a good one!
