Situated in Voegtlinhoffen near Colmar, Domaine Joseph Cattin has been making its own wines for nearly 300 years. This is a family-run estate, run by brothers Jacques and Jean-Marie, with the help of Jacques’ son (Jacques Jnr). The family’s watchwords are elegance and authenticity, and they use traditional methods for winemaking alongside new equipment for best results.
This is their first orange wine, made by macerating white grapes in contact with their skins. This has real body and spice, backing up preserved orange flavours, and is nearly dry, with a rounded texture. Succulent, and food friendly, matching pork chicken or duck (Duck a L'Orange anyone?), but also good with asian food, or a bit of spice.
