ABOUT ORANGE & ROSÉ WINE
It’s textural, it’s aromatic, it’s downright delicious... what are we talking about? Why, skin contact wine of course! Also known as orange wine, it’s a style of wine wherein the grape juice is kept in contact with the grape skins and seeds throughout fermentation (and through to maturation in some cases), allowing for the extended extraction of colour, tannin, and aromatic compounds. This makes for fascinating expressions of many white grapes that would otherwise be immediately pressed off and extracted away from their skins & seeds!
Flip everything you thought you knew about rosé on its head and open your eyes to these pink-hued wines. Made from all sorts of grape varieties, rosé doesn’t discriminate! From classic French rosé, to inventive modern takes, these wines can be sweet or dry, bright and fresh, crisp on the finish, textural, light, full-bodied, the list goes on. With perfumes as pretty as the colour in the glass and a spectrum of expression broader than most, it’s about time you dipped your toes into the pink pool of rosé.
