To taste any of the Rogue Vine wines is to discover a completely different side to Chilean wine & this orange wine demonstrates that.

A very expressive nose with notes of quince, flowers and orange peel, and a touch of spice. The palate is medium-bodied, with a slight grip. It makes a great aperitif and is perfect with cured ham – hence the name! 

A delicate & dry wine on the palate, made with whole bunch fermentation of Moscatel grapes, an extremely aromatic grape variety. Despite the big flavours on the nose this is not sweet at all & shows a crisp acidity & lovely minerality to keep this elegant on the palate. 

This is a great orange wine with plenty of personality, it has all of the elements we enjoy in an orange wine – aromatics, ripe citrus pithiness, texture, tannic structure & it’s food friendly! 

Viticulture is practicing organic. The vineyard was planted in the 1930’s, the vines are bush-trained and planted at high density. The top-soil is ploughed with horses and the vines are not irrigated.

The grapes are hand-picked and fermented as whole bunches on skins, using natural yeasts, in concrete tanks with no temperature control. The young wine then macerates on the skins for nearly two months, before being moved to old 500- litre oak barrels. The wine is bottled with minimal sulphur.

The vineyards are situated in Itata, an old and nearly forgotten viticultural valley 400 km south of Santiago, with centenary bush vines growing on pure granitic soils. Climate is Mediterranean, with plenty of rainfall, around 1,100 mm a year. The vineyards lie at 270 metres above sea level.
