Paraschos "One" Orange Wine 2018 Review

Gorizia is a beautiful place. Tucked into the Friulian hills (Colli) with a rich wine history based on skin-contact white wines, today a new generation of winemakers are looking to the past while heading into the future. At one time this style was not a choice but all they had to work with. They are going back to the days of orange/amber wine paying tribute to the sacrifices and hard work of the generations before them while using today’s knowledge to create balance. This wine is a classic example of what to expect from this wonderful place. Made from two native grapes from Friuli, this wine has the comforting quiet aroma of minerality; chalked and saline. It has incredible acidity that promotes the aromas of orange peel and earthy agave. The palate has depth and refreshment equally and is impeccably balanced. Do yourself a favor and seek this wine out.
