“What is an orange rosé you ask? We don’t know either. Big Salt “Orange Rosé” is nearly a 50/50 blend of ramato style Pinot gris and a co-fermented, skinzy Riesling. The combination of these production methods left us with a wine that doesn’t look or smell like a rosé – it isn’t as funky or extracted as an orange wine – it lives somewhere in between.2019 BSOR is peachy in color, no doubt because the Pinot gris was cranberry red, and Riesling was yellow an orange hue. It’s aromas are earthy – think roasted carrot, ginger, red apple skin. The palate is bracing (Riesling) and packed with citrus and aloe. It has a shocking amount of grip (amphorae) but not quite tannic. It oddly finishes with florals you’d expect from the nose, but it’s in the back palate.
There’s something alluring about this wine that makes me keep wanting to go back to it for another glass. I want to figure out what it’s all about, there’s a lot to unpack. The wine is far from refined, but it’s not what I would call “rustic.” It’s different, it’s strange, and we like it! Hope you do too.” Ksenija & John (Winemakers at Ovum/Big Salt)
