Overview

As the name suggests, L’Orange is not the typical Mediterranean white but copper-colored wine made from a blend of about 70% Marsanne, 15% Muscat and the remainder Terret and Grenache Gris. These white varieties are co-planted in limestone-rich soils along with the Grenache and Carignan in typical Mediterranean fashion. L’Orange is fermented in tank, whole cluster, and pressed after 9 days of skin contact. It returns to tank to complete fermentation and aging.
