Honeyed orange in color, Corduroy is reminiscent of a golden sunset haze. Layers of ripe papaya, yuzu marmalade, orange flower, and a hint of pumpkin spice unfurl in the glass. Crisp acidity pops on the palate and lifts flavors of makrut lime zest and earthy apricot. A touch of tannic friction coupled with a note of almond skin adds an alluring texture befitting its name. Take your time to savor this intriguing orange wine chilled alongside an assortment of your favorite cheese and charcuterie to really highlight its compelling structure.
The first vintage of County Line was solely dedicated to producing a dry Rosé from a whole-cluster pressed Champagne clone of Pinot Noir. A handful of varietals naturally followed. Using traditional winemaking techniques, and a shorter élevage in neutral French oak barrels or stainless steel, each wine is made to provide a cool-climate appellation snapshot of the Anderson Valley, Sonoma Coast, Russian River, or the North Coast. A companion label since 2003, the team at Radio-Coteau crafts these food-friendly comfort wines to drink gracefully in the present and be enjoyed throughout the seasons.
