This is named after the aromatic compounds stored in the skins of Moscato Giallo. The 2019 is a blend of Friulano (45%), Riesling (26%), Moscato Giallo (19%) and Malvasia Istriana (7%), all from Quealy's Balnarring home block. The grapes were added to a rolling ferment (as they were harvested) to open-top amphorae, and the wine spent six months on skins. It was then basket-pressed, roughly settled and allowed to mature in old French puncheons before being bottled 12 months later. Like the Turbul Friulano a little sulphur was added at pressing before a small adjustment at bottling.

A winemaking tour de force, the first thing you notice is just how clear and bright the wine is. One whiff and you're instantly transported to the great blended white wines of Friuli Venezia Giulia. Expect a complex melange of dried apricots and orange peel together with some fresh herbs and spice. The palate is dry, gently grippy (no one would ever guess how long this spent on skins), gorgeously energetic and long.
