2019 Vin de Days Blanc
This is a blend of several gorgeous vineyards from around the Willamette Valley; Anne Amie, Twelve Oaks, Momtazi, Fir Crest, Nemarniki and Le Beau. Each vineyard was picked when the fruit was optimal for the overall blend, and with the overall blend in mind. Thus, some fruit was picked for its aromatics, some for its acid, and some for its fruit characteristics. Each lot was pressed and settled, and then added to a stainless steel tank where the wine went through native fermentation. 2019 was a high acid year, so while this vintage went through full malolactic fermentation, the end result is still bright and crisp. It was cold stabilized and bottled unfined and unfiltered. This year's blend is Pinot Blanc 43%, Müller-Thurgau 20%, Riesling 22%, Pinot Gris 10%, Muscat 5%.
