2019 Kubli Bench Amber, Estate Orange Wine, Applegate Valley 
Scents of orange blossoms abound, and the flavors are exceptionally fresh and clean. The sharp acids emphasize flavors of citrus flesh and rind, and there are noticeable tannins, firming up the finish. Drink now and into 2022.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Enthusiast

The Kubli Bench Blend Series: We are excited to bring an Orange Wine to our series of Kubli Bench Estate blends that also includes a Rouge, Blanc and Rosé. Blending allows us to craft wines of great complexity and depth. Our Kubli Bench Amber is the more forward and fruity of our Orange Wines, which are made by making wines from white grapes using the same techniques as you would use to make red wine. The result is a very structured white wine with a distinct orange color. These are the most versatile of wines that can be served with almost any food. We love it as an aperitif with a broad range of appetizers. "Light amber in color, this wine smells of candied kumquat and wet leaves. In the mouth flavors of yellow plum, orange peel, vanilla and herbs have a wonderfully nice balance of fruity zing and earthier savory notes. Delightfully autumnal in quality thanks to the skin contact fermentation. A blend of 74% Riesling, 16% Vermentino and 10% Viognier" Alder Yarrow in Vinography
