Casa Murga, Sophia L’Orange, Pisco, Ica Valley, Peru, 2021
(at Peruvian Wines Tasting, 10 Jul 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2024
One of the most exciting and rewarding wines in Peru right now is this orange version made by Pietra Possamai with Quebranta and Mollar (the same grape as Negramoll from the Canary Islands) from the Pisco Valley. Co-fermented with native yeasts before ageing with skins for 30 days. It’s an amber orange in the glass with a potent, aromatic nose of floral and citrus notes, vibrant freshness and an expansive feel.
