The nose is complex, with an explosion of notes of white flowers, candied fruit and white pepper. On the palate, a very flattering aromatic freshness, with precise flavours and a beautiful balance to which the structure gives body and spirit. Sweet and refined, its texture envelops the palate. The tasting ends with an excellent length in the mouth that prolongs the gustatory journey and lovely, bitter touch that stimulates the taste buds. Endowed with a beautiful 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 platters to share. This remarkable and luminous wine also goes very well with spicy food, especially Indian dishes or Asian recipes.
To make an orange wine, the grapes macerate with all their solid parts (seeds, skin, stalk). The skin and the stalk components then release pigments and tannins, which give the wine that special orange colour with golden glints. The sweet bitterness that emerges from this whole bunch maceration is characteristic of orange wines.
