Ortodox 2006 is a blend of local varieties Rebula (AKA Ribolla Gialla), Verduzzo, Malvasia and Friulano, undergoing between 5-12 days of skin contact (the Rebula gets more than the other varieties) and substantial ageing in both wood and steel – Klinec describes it as a “riserva”.

This is a perfect example of the complexity and depth that a good orange wine can have. Here we get toffee and caramel notes on the nose, together with burnt plum skin, apricot and nuts. There’s serious structure, but the tannins are really refined with a nice nuttiness on the finish. A salty minerality cruises through the wine, lifting and energising everything. Wonderfully balanced, even with the formidable 14.8% alcohol.
