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.
Vinification & Maturing
Orange Gold is made using an ancient winemaking technique. The white grapes are vinified and fermented in whole bunches, in the same way as red wines. This maceration with the stalks and skins gives a remarkable orange colour with golden reflections and a very singular tannicity. It is an exceptional blend of seven grape varieties, essentially Mediterranean: Chardonnay, Grenache Blanc and Viognier bring volume and Marsanne, Mauzac and Muscat enrich the aromatic complexity of the wine. The perfect mastery of the vinification and the choice of grape varieties make this an orange wine with an unprecedented profile, remarkable finesse and subtlety. Orange Gold reflects the vibrancy, dynamism, minerality and freshness of the South of France. Made from organic grapes and imbued with all the nuances of their terroir, Orange Gold is AB certified.
The nose is complex, with an explosion of white flower, 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.
Food & Wine
With its freshness, light tannins and subtle acidity, Orange Gold goes well with many dishes. It is a wine of character, the perfect companion for aperitifs with friends and cheese boards to share. This remarkable, bright wine also pairs well with spicy food, especially Indian and Asian dishes. Orange Gold should be drunk at 12°C to appreciate all its freshness and minerality. Its aromatic complexity and rich palate will develop in the glass at 14°C.
