For some time, the Orange Wines have been trending topic of the most experienced in the world of wine. This is not to say that they are a novelty since they have existed for a long time.
The Orange Wines were born in the Caucasus more than 6000 years ago. At that time, wine in Armenia and Georgia was produced in clay or terracotta amphorae of 500 to 800 litres, normally buried in the soil, which allowed to maintain good temperatures for long maceration, and, in addition, its opening facilitated manual work during the process. Interestingly, this long maceration process creates natural sulphites in greater quantity than usual preserving wine naturally from oxidation.
The name of these wines is given for their winemaking. They are white wines made as reds, and it is that skin contact which gives them colour towards orange notes. In addition to providing colour, this maceration and fermentation with the skins, brings a certain tannin to these unusual wines.
These white wines have structure, tannins and richness of aromas and flavours. Wines with incredibly good aging capacity.
