2022 LS Merchants Hoi Polloi Orange
Margaret River, Western Australia
Hoi Polloi - A wine for the masses, the common people.
Who said orange wine has to be fancy..
This new addition to the LSM family is a skin-fermented sauv blanc, gewurztraminer and pinot gris blend. It spent 14 days on skins with daily plunging, fermented with naturally occurring yeast and no additions made bar some SO2 pre-bottling. It was unfined and unfiltered going into the bottle.
If you have not had many orange wines before this is the perfect way to start, beautifully balanced phenolics with notes of blood orange rind, ginger spice and orange blossom. - Dylan Arvidson, Winemaker
