Aus Orange is a dry amber white wine made from Pansa rosada (Xarel-lo vermell) and Pansa Blanca (Xarel-lo) by the Pujol-Busquets family.
The grapes are harvested by hand in an extraordinary state of health. After a light pressing to obtain the free-run juice, spontaneous fermentation takes place in Sauló amphorae together with the grape skins. The maceration with the skins is extended for two months, in order to increase the tannic structure and the "terroir" character. The shape of the amphorae allows the lees to move freely, ideal for enjoying a "natural bâtonnage". No sulphites or other products are added throughout the winemaking process.
Appearance. Amber colour with golden reflections (orange colour that has changed to amber with ageing).
Nose. Consistent and powerful, characteristic of fermentation with the skin - notes of fennel and citrus (mandarin peel).
Palate. Voluminous and tasty entry. Saline notes, well-marked acidity and long aftertaste (with tannic structure), balanced and very fresh.
