Orange Kerner is Astley’s very first attempt at making an “orange wine”.
Orange wines use white grape skins (which are usually discarded) to bridge the gap between white & red wine. These “skin contact” wines often possess tannins which aren’t usually found in white wines. The flavours and aromas are often very different from those found in traditional white wines – akin to sour & lambic beers. Orange wines are often extremely food friendly.
Astley Vineyard Orange Kerner has intense, beautiful aromas of orange peel, orange blossom, fresh orange and fennel. Gently tannic, slightly sour (but balanced against a core of fruit).
