Orange Wine is made by leaving white wine in contact with the grape skin, giving some colour, and a depth of flavour similar to a red wine. The wines can be very dry and sometimes a little sour in taste. They are becoming very popular as something a little different. There are no oranges involved however!

Refreshing like a white wine, with the complexity of red wine. This orange wine is made by leaving the grape skins and seeds in contact with the pressed juice, creating a deep orange-hued finish. This is a complex and structured wine, with elegant but discreet fruit flavours of stone fruits, backed up with a powerful tannin structure and long finish. A natural minimal intervention wine which is well balanced and structured yet pure and incredibly fresh.
A very pale orange pink colour, the nose is elegant with sweet aromas of stone fruits, mineral and anise, supported by apricot, mirabelle plum and citrus notes. Full and well rounded on the palate, with plenty of weight, yet still elegant, lively and light in body. Easy to drink.
98% Semillion with just a touch of Sauvignon Blanc added to enhance the freshness and acidity. Olivier Cazenave is the winemaker behind this experimental wine named after a revolutionary song, with roots in Northern Ireland but used as an anti-fascist song by the Italians in the 1940’s. A wild nose of tangerine, blossom and grassy notes, with an almost tropical palate of Sicilian lemons and Mediterannean herbs. A vibrant, energetic wine that pairs well with exotic spicy dishes or curry based foods.

This is a great orange wine with plenty of flavours of peach and summer fruits. Easy drinking, summery and delicious!
A skin contact white wine from a very old variety, sourced from high vineyards in the heart of the Gredos mountains. Fuller-bodied for a white, with great mouthfeel and texture. Lots of great flavours of orchard fruit and florals, plus some sweeter notes, though a dry wine!

Founded in 2007, Pheasant’s Tears produces artisanal natural wines with ancient Georgian techniques, growing rare endemic grape varieties and harvesting with organic processes.

A classically made orange wine with aromas of raw honey, walnuts and apricots which follow through onto the palate. A full bodied wine that’s quite versatile on the table but will stand up well with roasted chicken or even, duck and quail.
Aromas of wild honey and freshly baked bread which contrast with its dry, very racy texture. Core flavours are remeniscent of Asian fruits with a minerality that comes through. Similar to Jura in style but distinctively New World. Fascinating Chenin showing how South Africa is becoming a very exciting country for natural wine with life and vigour!
