Orange wine has been one of the hottest trends in recent years at upscale restaurants. If you have always been curious about what a white wine that’s made like red wine (skin contact and fermented with stems) would taste like, now is your chance. And compared to many orange wines, this is both accessible and affordable. Best of all, this blend of organically grown Chardonnay, White Grenache, Viognier, Marsanne, Mauzac and Muscat is really really tasty.
“So many aromas and flavours on this wine. We start with white and yellow florals on the nose, ripe peach, fresh apple and fragrant orange zest to wake up the senses, finishing long and zesty on a mineral note. There are light tannins on this wine. Orange Gold is made using an ancient winemaking technique whereby grapes are whole bunch vinified and fermented.”
Orange Gold pays tribute to the first orange wines of Georgia 4500 years ago. Gérard Bertrand wants to create a new profile of fresh orange wines. With this unique name, Orange Gold pays tribute to the power of the sun and the beautiful sunsets of the South of France.
The nose is complex, with an explosion of white flowers, candied fruit and white pepper notes. On the palate, a very flattering aromatic freshness, with precise flavours and a beautiful balance to which the structure gives body and spirit. Suave and fine, its texture envelops the palate. The tasting ends with a nice length in the mouth that prolongs the gustatory journey and a sweet bitter touch that stimulates the taste buds.
