Purveyors of fine grape juice
2017 Causse Marines Oranginal gaillac, france
$55

This is a sparkling orange wine made by the Causse Marines team following a trip to Tasmania where they were introduced to the sparkling orange wine called Vej from Emilia Romagna.
Patrice and Virginie became entranced with this wine and were determined to return to Gaillac and create their own version of this style – and hence Oranginal was born. It is made from a blend of sweet juice from pressing the must of Mauzac Blanc and Mauzac Rose that had been macerated for three weeks. The wine was then bottled and the fermentation kicked in from the sugar in the must.
