Amber Wine

Orange-hued wine made by allowing the skins and seeds of white grapes to stay in contact with the juice through fermentation and a portion of aging — in other words, it’s a white-grape wine made like a red-grape wine. The process extracts tannins and polyphenols, producing a wine that’s more structured and savory than a white wine made with the same grapes.

Synonyms:
Orange Wine, Skin Contact Wine
