The “Colección de Toneles Centenarios” company was born from an extraordinary treasure: the barrel room of the Ferrero Wineries, an old wine-producing winery in Alicante, located in the city of Cañada, Alicante. The Luis XIV Orange has Alicante as its designation of origin and is a wine made from the grape historical variety Mersseguera from Alicante (100%). Only 1,650 bottles were made. The grapes come from an old vineyard located at 540 meters above sea level. The grapes have had a maceration of whole bunches of grapes for 3 months. Marketing agencies are often able to give an idea that there is something completely new again, as is also the case with Orange wines, but this is total nonsense. This Orange wine comes from an ancient tradition of the old "Brisado Wines" from Alicante. The reason we now call it an Orange wine is because during fermentation unlike a white wine the must has contact with the skins and stems and this gives it its extra acidity and freshness as well as its peculiar orange colour. So nothing but a white wine made according to the principles of a red wine. This great wine is also made according to the principles of minimal intervention, with no additives until bottling.

The Luis XIV Orange has an intense yellow color, with orange reflections. On the nose, the wine is intense, with floral and fruity sensations reminiscent of a Mediterranean garden. In the mouth it has good tension, with fine-grained tannins and very persistent aromas. It is a very intense white wine, which goes perfectly with rice dishes based on meat or fish, but also with various seafood stews and tapas. This white wine has more spice and structure, so it also goes well with spicy dishes or fish or white meat with slightly oilier sauces. Unique and delicious.
