About him: Auksinis Maceration is an Orange Wine made from Sauvignon grapes in the prestigious Sancerre area, in the Loire Valley, from which this particular and unique type of wine takes its name. Macerated for a long time on the skins, coming from late harvest with the use of 50% of botrytized grapes, so affected by a noble mold that makes the berries richer in sugars and poorer in water and aged for three years in exhausted wooden barriques. Thus was born a masterpiece of French enology, which immediately surprises for its orange and slightly veiled color. The aromas are very rich and varied, ranging from notes of ripe citrus, sweet hints of caramel and vanilla to more intense aromas of undergrowth and earth. Pleasantly enveloping on the palate, deep and intense, characterized by a lively and lashing freshness. A bottle of great impact and character, capable of enclosing the characteristics of the terroir and all the love of the vigneron!!!
