choice of wood
The wood from the oak tree (in Latin Quercus) is a popular choice for the construction of vats or barrels. Small oak barrels are particularly common, and the oak can come from the famous forests of Allier, Nevers, Tronçais, Limousin and Vosges in France, to native Austrian oak, Hungarian oak along with American and Russian examples.
Special vinification technique
Generally speaking, the term ‘Orange wine’ is understood to mean wine made from white grapes vinified with prolonged skin contact, often resulting in an orange colour.
According to Austrian Wine Law, in the case of Landwein or wine without a more specific designation of origin other than »Österreich« (with or without indication of variety & vintage, exhibiting turbidity and an oxidative note) turbidity and an oxidative note shall not be regarded as wine defects; the wine may be marketed if it bears the supplementary designation ‘Orange Wine’ or ‘orangewine’.
