Strength of a Woman

Sun Goddess 2019
Pinot Grigio 100%
Friuli DOC Venezia Giulia  Italy
by Mary J. Bligh and produced by Fantinel

Shimmering light tinged pink orange ramato copper gold. Take a deep breath and there’s a floral perfume of orange and apple blossoms, and roses. There’s also tangerine, orange peel, and finally as it opens grassy salty sea breeze. Now onto the sip…citrus, melon, mineral, and and tiny strawberries, like the small Canadian ones that we got on the side the road when I was a little kid. They were tiny drops of delicious sugar. Finishes nice and dry.

Pairs with Cheez-Itz: strawberries, melon, yet dry. It’s smooth with a kick of citrus.

Also pairs well with a song that always inspires me

A Little Friulano Slang

Borgo Savaian di Bastiani Stefano
Aransat 2019
Friuli Orange Wine
Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc
Cormons Italy

Color is gold like a bar from Fort Knox. Let it breathe a little before the whiff. There’s dark tangerine or grapefruit peels (that have been flamed), orange blossoms, and wet concrete after a cleansing rain, and wait…a hint of pine needles. Swish and swirl and take the first sip. Again there’s orange blossoms and now flamed orange peel. It’s heady, and then takes my memories back to an orange jolly candy from my childhood. I think there’s also a bit of kumquat, definitely salt, and some granite. This is a beautiful clean wine. Oh and the more you know: Aransat is Friuli slang for orange.

Pairs with Cheez-It’s: makes it oh so sweet gold. Brings out the orange oil. Burn that peel!
