Orange wine is made from white grapes, but it is fermented in contact with the skins and seeds, for a longer period of time than is used to produce conventional white wines. This produces an orange color and a more complex and tannic flavor than whites.
In the last years, this type of wine has become popular all over the world, including Spain. The elaboration of orange wine has focused on the wine regions of the northeast of the country especially in Catalonia, the Valencian Community and in our case, Castilla La Mancha.
The variety Garnacha Blanca is used to produce orange wine, which is characterized by notes of spices, herbs and dried fruits.
It is important to highlight that elaboration is a relatively new practice in Spain, so there may be variations in its preparation and characteristics depending on the winery that produces it.
