Often referred to as “orange wine” the practice of leaving the grape skins to ferment with the pressed juice dates back thousands of years to the Caucasus region where Europe and Asia intersect. This ancient practice of extended skin contact during the fermentation of white wines produces a rich and complex wine with added tannins and phenols, and of course the distinctive amber, or “orange,” hue. This wine expands the pairing options of white wine. The bright acid and added tannic texture allows this white wine to pair well with bigger, bolder foods, similar to a light red wine. Lightly chill and enjoy this unique white wine experience.
