Spanish blue wine on sale in France
03 August 2018 @ 21:53

EXPORTING wine to France may sound a little like selling coals to Newcastle, but Spain is shifting tonnes of an Almería chardonnay to its northern neighbour.

The quirk is that the wine in question is blue – which has proven a hit with French consumers.

Vindigo – a word-play on 'indigo' and vino – contains no artificial colouring, but instead is filtered through red grape-skin pulp which turns it purpley-bluish.

The grape skin naturally contains a colourant known as anthocyanins, also found in forest fruits and black beans.

Vindigo is described by distributors in France as 'perfect for summer', since its relatively low alcohol level – 11% - means it does not dehydrate so much, and its flavour is said to be 'fruity' with notes of passion fruit, blackberry and cherry.
