An ancient way of making wine from Roman times is being hailed at the summer drink. Made from leaving grape skins in for longer than normal, it is getting rave reviews from wine critics. Having looked in the shops I have yet to find a bottle to try. Summer for me is a chilled glass of Rose and I am at odds about changing to orange. Perhaps its the wine industry's way of tackling the rise of Prosecco, so a slow burn that may gradually become the it drink? Only time will tell.
Said to have a richer, more complex flavour than regular white, orange wine uses ancient methods whereby wines were fermented naturally in clay pots with their skins on at unregulated temperatures.
