Amber Wine

Amber Wine. Just when you were getting over orange being added to the already confusing white, pink and red list… we totally “flor” you with amber.

Not just the grungy wine with floaty bits that your pink haired cousin with a Bernie Sanders tattoo brings to family Christmas; it’s actually steeped in history, skilled technique and intention.

Amber wines have a strong foundation in Georgia, and were originally created by fermenting on skins and seeds for extended periods of time, under the ground in terracotta pots. A lot of the time, these wines would form a cap of yeast (for those keen to know, the yeast strain is saccharomyces cerevisiae - you’re welcome). This cap is called a flor.
