The Wine: Hang Eleven Orange 2020
Hollow Wines Hang Eleven Orange is a skin-contact (orange) natural wine made from 100% Chardonnay farmed organically. This wine was fermented with native yeast, 7 days of skin contact, bottled unfined, unfiltered, only 30ppm of added sulfites. Good body and acidity for a brilliantly tropical orange wine, Jacques Cousteau, depicted on the label, would have approved. Serve slightly chilled.
The Producer: Hollow Wines
Hollow Wine is the brainchild of Quinn Hobbs, who's also an amazing surfer, and a friend. Quinn is obsessed with surfing, mountain biking, making low-intervention wine, and the color pink. But he's also completing his Ph.D. in Policy! Mind-blowing. He learned how to make low-intervention wine in Australia and can be seen in scouring the Central Coast looking for cool obscure Italian varietals such as Ruche' and Greco – all for sales on Primal folks, we got the full lineup from the man himself.
