Show Some Skin — Wine Pack
A Trio That
introduces you to everyone's new favourite category—Skin Contact. Orange wine has taken the wine world by storm, and here are three unique bottles from some of the world's most celebrated natural wine growers. Our first bottle, Milan Nestarec's Forks and Knives, is a brand new release—a fun and uncomplicated blend of his favourite varieties left on the skins for a few days to develop texture and flavour. Think apricots and herbs. The second pick is an Aussie staple from one of the Greats: Patrick Sullivan. His cuvée Waterskin is the equivalent of a day at the beach: fresh melon and sea salt. The final bottle is a one-of-a-kind Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre, made by the legend Sebastien Riffault. The Auksinis cuvée was a 2016 experiment in which he left the wine on the skins for a few weeks. This intensified and energized the honeyed texture of his partly botrytized grapes.

Forks & Knives White 2018
by Milan Nestarec — Czech Republic
A wine that according to Milan Nestarec is 'so friendly, understanding yet unassuming that you want to marry it and spend the rest of your life with. What remains (and always will, I hope), is the electricity that grasps you right away, with the very first sip, and keeps you coming back for more, like a butterfly lured by a bright halogen light.'
by Patrick Sullivan — Australia, Gippsland
A wine that takes the lines between "white" and "orange" wine and erases them. This doesn't fall into a singular category of wine, but it does taste like a day at the beach in a bottle. With crisp melon, white peach and a touch of seasalt, it's the kind of wine that disappears before your eyes.
by Sébastien Riffault — France, Loire
A wine that is an absolutely unique kind of bottling by Sébastien. Unlike his other Sauvignon Blanc cuvées, the Auksinis Maceration is left on the skins for a week before being aged in tank and barrel for 3 years. 50 year old vines and 50% healthy noble rot grapes – pure concentration – like sitting on a warm sunny day and watching the sunset go by.
