What is an Orange Wine?
Orange Wines are essentially white wines, made using the grape skins as well as the juice.
By macerating the wine juice with the skins during and even after fermentation (which is not done when making white wine) the tannins, flavour and colour structure of the wine changes.
Orange wines can often have more herbal, aromatic notes alongside bitter touches depending on the grape used and the level of maceration with the skins, and wine maturation vessel.
