2020 Opi d’Aqui L'orangeade11026
VARIETAL: Marsanne, Grenache Blanc
REGION: Languedoc, FR
WINEMAKER: Philippe Formentin
"The name “Orangeade” is a light-hearted attempt to explain this wine. It is made by macerating the Marsanne (60%) and Grenache Blanc (40%) grape varieties which were destemmed and macerated for 15 days then aged in used wooden barrels for a period of 6 months without being topped up.
It is a lightly orange wine which we have found stands up quite well over a couple of days of being opened. It is not aggressively tannic like some macerated wines. It will go with a wide variety of foods." - Living Wines
