Orange Sitka - Amaro SpritzEsquimalt Wine Company
6.9% Alc./Vol. 750ml
Tasting Notes: Juicy and tart marmalade, but fermented totally dry. Garden herbs and springtime strolls through a west coast forest.
Sitka Spruce Tips are a fabulous and fleeting wild delicacy that is only in season on Vancouver Island for three weeks of the year. While the spruce tips are young, the flavour is an incredible combination of bright citrus fruits, fresh-picked strawberries and garden herbs.
We aged Blueberry Blossom Mead on these foraged spruce tips before adding fresh orange peel and just a touch of star anise and celery seed. We then added wormwood and quinine for that delightful bitterness.
Perfect for sharing with the friends and family we've missed so much and even better with a giant bowl of fresh homemade pasta. Oh, and don't forget to watch out for sneaky seagulls!
