Jeff Coutelou's OW cuvée is an orange wine made naturally - with no sulphur additions. Coutelou's wines are among our favourites of all time. They are incredibly pure expressions of whatever grape varieties Jeff is using, and this is no exception. 100% Muscat, it has a beautiful floral aroma and delicate tannins. Exactly as natural wine should be.
