Union Sacré 2019 L'Orangerie Gewurztraminer Orange Wine
This orange wine took our breath away. Not kidding - there was so much floral, citrus, chamomile and fairy dust, we almost couldn't wrap our heads around it. But we tried really hard, tasted it over and over and then the bottle was gone. So bittersweet. Not the wine! Anyhoo, l’Orangerie is a periodic release of Union Sacré, named for the seasonal gardens of Versaille where fruiting orange trees are rotating into the springtime and summer sun. Oh wait - that's exactly what it is! Transportive.
Pairings: Bathtub, poolside, barbeque, thai food, onion rings, dry bar, pre-dinner, post theatre, fluffy dog on your lap, on-line art class, break-up, make-up.
