Description

This orange wine, made naturally without sulphites or yeast, is white wine made like red wine, where macerating the skins and seeds for three months results in the release of pigments and tannins which give the wine a coppery colour and grippy structure.

Grapes are sourced from a number of Villa Noria’s certified organic vineyards, this is a blend of Muscat, Clairette and Piquepoul. Following maceration, the wine is matured in terracotta amphora, whose porosity provides regular oxygenation and also helps reduce the acidity and round out the tannins.

Rich copper-amber in colour, this presents an atypical and very interesting aromatic profile with notes of gingerbread, candied orange, beeswax and honey. The palate is full flavoured, rich and rounded, Tanora-like with it’s ginger-spice nuances, baked apple and nutty notes, it’s softly textured with a slight bitterness from the tannins, with a taste of rhubarb and ginger jam on the finish.

Producer: Villa Noria

Founded in 2010, Villa Noria is only a young slip of a thing but as wholesomely ethical, energetic, enthusiastic and innovative as any producer we've come across. It's the vision realised of Cédric Arnaud and Fabien Gross, both acquiring their interest in winemaking from their grandparents and coming together with different but complementing skill-sets, to establish the winery and five areas of vineyards with distinctive and differing terroirs..

Every vineyard is under organic cultivation and adheres to France's high environmental value (HVE) standards, planting disease resistant varieties, promoting biodiversity, protecting water resources and conserving the landscape. The vines, nestled between the Mediterranean Sea and the foothills of the Larzac plateau give elegant wines from the noble grape varieties including Picpoul, Sauvignon Blanc, Clairette, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay. There's experimentation with natural winemaking and orange wines, and innovation with developing non-alcoholic grape-based drinks that you'd actually choose to drink. We can't wait to see what comes next.
