“Vairon” is Dirler-Cadé’s first orange wine, where a few thousand bottles have been produced. Vairon means a two-colored eye – the label symbolizes how the green grapes give the orange color in the wine.
Vairon is aromatic with a very fresh nose. Muscat characterizes the nose, while Gewurztraminer is the backbone of the taste. Spices and tannins. The wine has no added sulphur. 6 days macération with Muscat, and 15 days macération with Gewurztraminer in steel tanks.
Vairon is ideal as an apéritif and for barbecue.
