This orange (skin-contact white) has an intense golden orange-yellow cloudy hue, exuding a charming yeasty aroma of apricot, orange peel, ripe tropical fruit and light spice on the bouquet. The palate is lush, soft, juicy and elegant, with hints of bitter orange rind, displaying lovely vibrant acidity, balance and structure, amidst fine tannins, leading to a fresh, mouth-watering, salty finish.

Famed Douro producer Dirk Neepoort, whose son Daniel lived with the Kettern family in Piesport for four vintages, followed now by his brother Marco. Together they have a project called Fio, making “Natural Wines” that challenge the old order and which we are now bringing in for the first time. The estate was founded in the 1950’s by Lothar, but son Philipp has been in charge since 2009. To describe him as iconoclastic is an understatement. He has converted the estate to something approaching organic viticulture, while pushing the envelope with Fio and its low-sulphur wines. He has also converted most of his production to dry and off-dry wines, while maintaining the noble tradition of classically sweet Mosels to the manner born. In short, he offers us something of everything – bone-tingling, electric Mosel classics, modern dry wines and cutting-edge natural wines.
