La Vie en Orange

The Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier grapes used in this wine were carefully selected from growers working in organic viticulture methods, which means no use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. The grapes were grown in the area of Aspiran, Hérault, which is dominated by limestone. The winemaking process included skin contact for two weeks, direct pressing followed by low-temperature fermentation, and three months aging on fine lees in a stainless steel tank. The wine was then bottled with SO2 < 50mg/L. The wine has a pale gold color with a hint of orange. On the nose, it displays aromas of apples and pears with a hint of orange. The wine also has a floral note of orange blossom, along with pear and apple notes. The palate is complex, with hints of peach and lychees and a subtle green tea-like tannin structure. The wine has a nice acidity and a long finish.
