LES JAMELLES VIN ORANGE 20
This crisp, dry, characterful orange wine comes from the Languedoc in the south of France where winemakers Catherine and Laurent Delauney founded their Les Jamelles brand in the early 1990s.
This wine is a rich and distinctly delicious blend of Grenache Blanc, Viognier, Muscat, Gewurztraminer and Chenin Blanc. The grapes were grown in calcareous clay soil on gentle slopes in the foothills of the Montagne Noire where the hot climate adds length and structure to the wine while the richly flavoursome grapes each provide depth and flavour to the wine.
Orange wine spends time on the grape skins which provide the wine with a little tannin and colour, despite it being made entirely from white grapes. The finished wine was aged for several months on fine lees.
* Les Jamelles is owned by winemakers Catherine and Laurent Delaunay, who founded their wine brand in the early 1990s.
