Bird & Fox Sauvignon Blanc Orange 2014

The label for this is beautiful as it just has a bird and a fox on the front. The back label informs that it is an orange wine made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape. Well actually the clear bottle allows the orange colour to come through which is much better than articulating that it is a sav blanc. I believe that orange wines should have a wine name and not both with a reference to the variety.

What texture this vibrant little number possesses which seems to be well balanced by acidity. The Sauvignon Blanc was kept on skins for 10 days prior to being pressed off to 2 old French barrels.
In the beginning this tasted a low like Tom Shobbrooks Giallo in flavour profile with a massive hit of guava, dragon fruits, orange rind and all sorts of spices. The texture is thick yet vibrant and refreshing. Lovely and a great introduction to orange or skin contact wines.
