Damijan - 'Nekaj' Venezia Giulia 2017
This delightful orange wine is from the noble Damijan winery in Friuli-Venezia Giulia. This 2017 vintage boasts a striking golden-hued color, with radiant highlights that hint of its complexity and depth in the glass. Aromas of citrus pith, honeydew melon, and fennel greet the nose, followed by notes of honeysuckle, white peach, and elderflower. On the palate, the wine has a subtly creamy texture with moderate to good acidity on the finish. Atop a core of pear, melon and quince flavors is a bright saline characteristic that makes the ‘Nekaj’ Venezia Giulia perfect for seafood dishes. The body is full and round, leaving a lingering hint of tangerine and passion fruit on the tongue. As this is an orange wine there is no tannin expression but it has a wonderful complexity. Enjoy on its own or with roasted seafood or fish recipes as it will pair perfectly on any occasion.
