Mount Edward Clockwork Central Otago 2022
Full bodied, funky, dry and orange tinged, thanks to eight months of skin contact which provides colour and flavour. Clockwork Orange is all about texture and skin contact is its defining attribute. Flavours here are of zesty acidity thanks to the inclusion of Albarino, Riesling and Chenin Blanc - three great white grapes that all contribute zesty, zingy aspects from their naturally high acidity.
It's full bodied and, yes, has some orange tinges to its colour thanks to skin contact during the fermentation of this wine.
It's a style that owes its origins to Georgia, possibly the oldest wine region on Earth.
