2018 Division “L’Orange”

Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Gewürztraminer and Aligoté

American White Wine

Over the past several years, we’ve experimented with various approaches to skin fermented white wines, looking to create a bottling that focuses on our favorite aspects of a style generally referred to as “Orange Wine”. We are thrilled to present our first skin-contact white wine for wider release! L’Orange features a blend of some of white grapes from some of our favorite sites, and we think we’ve really struck gold (or struck orange!) with this approachable orange wine. This is definitely an orange wine that you will want by the bottle – not just a taste!

Capturing complex colors, textures, and aromatics deliciously was the main goal, and our 2018 L’Orange demonstrates the beautiful harmony we were seeking through this blend of grapes, resulting from two different co-ferments that were macerated on their skins for up to three weeks. The fermentations occurred in open top barrels, and there was only one small sulfur addition at bottling. The wine is unfined and unfiltered.

Along with notes of gardenia and tangerine peel, we can’t help but notice a touch of eucalyptus in the wine, connecting it to our friend and Portland-based artist Camille Shuman’s “Eucs”. “Eucs” is a piece that we find beautifully reflects the synthesis of this extended skin contact white wine that we just had to feature it on the label!
