Did you know that wine comes not only in red, white and pink,
but also in orange and it's the en-trend thing in the world of
wine. Orange wine is white wine made like red wine, so the skins
and seeds are left in with the grape juice, adding colour and
texture. It's also typically made using natural processes with
little or no added ingredients.
Our wine of the month is Orange Natural Wine 2021

fresh fruit but with a powerful structure and full body.

What is natural wine?
"While there is no universally accepted definition of natural
wine, it is generally agreed to be wine that is farmed organically
(biodynamically, using permaculture or the like) and made (or
rather transformed) without adding or removing anything in the
cellar. No additives or processing aids are used, and
'intervention' in the naturally occurring fermentation process is
kept to a minimum. As such neither fining nor (tight) filtration
are used. The result is a living wine - wholesome and full of
naturally occurring microbiology." Rawwine.com
