Modern white wines are generally pressed from their skins prior to fermentation. Orange wine is a term given to white wines that have been fermented and aged on their skins.

In 2016, budburst was followed by a late frost and an extensive rainy period between mid-May and the end of June. Fortunately, unusually hot and dry conditions prevailed from mid-August through to October to yield a small yet perfectly ripened and healthy crop.

2016 Litmus Orange is produced from the Bacchus grape variety which was fermented and remained for sixteen months on skins without sulfur dioxide before bottling in May 2018.

Pale gold in colour the wine displays hazelnut, fennel and marzipan characters on the nose. The palate has a touch of white pepper spice, is incredibly generous and complex and boasts a long broad palate with a gripping astringency and smooth, long finish. Enjoy with oily meats and spicy dishes.
