Altugnac Orange is the New Wine 2019
Orange is the New Wine? Yes indeed! We’re not talking Orange, NSW here - we are talking white wine made like red - skin-contact white wine that results in a textural wine with an amber hue. What the wine gains from time on skins can vary, depending on the variety and time that the juice is in contact with the skins. However, in general, you will find a texture from the phenolics (white wine tannins) and amazing aromas, along with the colour.
This wine, made from muscat and sauvignon spent 14 days on skins and is an approachable example of the style. The nose is bursting with floral and citrus notes, along with a delightful peachiness. It’s a medium-bodied wine with light grip and a dry, floral finish. The place for this wine is a dinner party, where you get to discover just how well this textural and savoury style can work with food.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
