L'Étalon de Franck 2019 - Orange Wine
Style: Orange short maceration
Pair with: Nuts, Spiced food, roast chicken
A stallion running free in a field full of lavender is the scene that comes to mind with this wine. Dominant floral aromas of lavender, mixed with pine and ginger, also very expressive on the fruity side with tropical scents of papaya and orange zest. Strong on the palate, with gentle flavours of tropical fruits and flowers, fine tannins, and long-lasting.
L'Étalon de Franck is produced from organic Gewürztraminer from a parcel called “Etalon” which means stallion. The fruit is hand-harvested, and fermented with native yeasts. 6 days of skin maceration. Ageing is done for 14 months on the fine lees. No sulfur was added.
