description

"Ophrys is a shadow of cherry, an intimate orbit of red power. Ophyrs is named for the wild orchid, the bee orchid, that lives alongside the grapevines in the limestone terroir of Bollenberg. Lighter than any pinot but operating on more frequencies than any pinot noir as well. Marie and Jean-Paul make this wine by blending direct press pinot noir (no skin contact) and skin macerated pinot gris. The wine is then aged in wood tank. In the glass, it smells of cherry and wants to be eaten with some roast fowl, particularly peking duck."
