Vinification of the Orange Gold by Gerard Bertrand
The basis for the balanced Orange Gold from the Languedoc are grapes from the grape varieties Muscat, Chardonnay, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Mauzac and Viognier. Orange Gold is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, as this Frenchman exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. The ripeness of the grapes for this wine, made from Muscat, Chardonnay, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Mauzac and Viognier, is influenced to an extent that cannot be denied by the climate of the growing region. In Languedoc, the grapes thrive in a warm climate, which is reflected, among other things, in particularly well ripened grapes and a rather high must weight. After manual harvesting, the grapes are immediately taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Fermentation follows in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally drawn into bottles.
