2018 Orange Wine "80 / 20" (Forlong, Bodegas)

Bodega de Forlong, “80/20” Orange Wine, Cadiz, Andalucía, Spain 2018

{organic} 100% Palomino, Pedro Ximinez skins

LEMON, PINEAPPLE, LIGHTLY FUNKY. CHALK & ORANGE PEEL

Wondering what orange wine is? Here’s the scoop: white wine grapes are pressed, then the juice is left to ferment with the skins instead of being filtered off. This imparts more body, color, and texture, as well as yielding a much more natural, less processed wine. Quirkily, grapes most often found in sherry are used here: Palomino grapes for the juice, with Pedro Ximinez skins added to the fermentation and left to mingle for 25 days.

Serving Suggestion: Lemon grilled tilapia w/ jasmine rice. Any combo of hard sheep’s milk cheeses, such as Manchego, Roncal, or Ossau-Iraty.
