Of late, orange wines have been all the rage. This winemaking process keeps white grapes in contact with their skins from a couple of days to a couple of months. Normally, white grapes are pressed for juice which is immediately separated from the skins. However by leaving the skins in contact with the juices, phenolic compounds, tannins, and color are extracted. This deepening of color is the genesis for the name orange wine.  Domaine de Clovallon keeps the Chardonnay and Roussanne for this wine at a cool temperature without undue crushing. The lower temperature allows for gentle extraction of phenols and therefore a supple mouthfeel of tannin and a lighter orange color. Only 400 cases produced, this is an orange wine with training wheels that pairs well with the fat of cheeses, salmon, or ham.
