Description

Orange wine is white wine made like red wine, the orange-amber colour coming from extended contact with the skins and seeds resulting in colour and tannins.

Muscat grapes are harvested at night to preserve freshness and avoid any form of oxidation. Natural fermentation occurs at low temperatures and without the addition of sulphites or yeast, with ageing on fine lees until bottling.

Pale amber in the glass and spellbinding on the nose with notes of ginger ale, candied fruit, apple and redcurrant jelly. The palate is structured and dry, but well balanced, autumn fruits with gingerbread and secondary flavours of orange peel, dried apricot and finishing with tangy redcurrant jelly. “It’s Tanora, boy!” exclaimed our Sharon on first tasting.

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.
