2018 Causse Marines Zacm‘Orange



The Zacm‘Orange is an orange (skin contact) wine made from 100% Mauzac that has had some 21 days of skin contact prior to being transferred to 400 litre barrels to mature for 7 months.
The vineyard where the Mauzac is grown is in front of their winery and the vines love the clay and limestone soils that they grow in. It is a complex wine with a bright orange colour from the skin contact, a hint of spritz (natural winemakers often encourage a light spritz because carbon dioxide is a very good preservative and anti-bacterial agent) and some very nice tannins making it a perfect food wine. No sulphites have been added at any stage and the wine has not been fined or filtered.
