Luis XIV Orange Wine

 

Vineyard and Winemaking

 

Luis XIV Orange Wine is an orange wine (brisado) from old vines grown in the village of Canyada (Alicante).

Historic vineyards, planted in the 60′, on sandy soils that provide fine and elegant wines. Vineyards planted at 560 meters altitude.

Made from the historic Alicante grape variety Merseguera.

An “Orange Wine” that drinks from the tradition of the old “Vinos Brisados” from Alicante. The contact of the skins and stems with the must gives it its extra point of acidity and freshness as well as its peculiar orange color.

Produced under the principles of minimum intervention, with no additives until bottling.

Numbered edition: 1,650 bottles.

The Winery

 

In the 60s, the centenary Bodegas Ferrero, in the municipality of La Cañada (Alicante), ceased its activity and as a result the family has been inheriting generation after generation what was left of it, an incredible room of centenary barrels in extraordinary conditions of conservation that have been brought to the present day. A set of very old soleras, unaltered for more than 60 years.

This great collection of barrels houses classic dry fondillones. But also sweet wines, typical of the characteristic style of Alto Vinalopó.

In this sub-zone of the Alicante Denomination of Origin, dessert wines achieved great fame and popularity during the 19th century.
