2021 Vin De Days Blanc
This is an Alsatian-style white blend of several organically farmed vineyards from around the Willamette Valley. Each vineyard was picked when the fruit was optimal for the overall blend: some fruit was picked for its aromatics, some for its acid, and some for its fruit characteristics. Native-yeast fermentation. Spontaneous malo-lactic fermentation. Low-sulfur. This year the tropical notes are bright; pineapple, green papaya and lemon oil. Marzipan, yellow cherry and yellow apple all make an appearance. The finish shows sweet basil, wet stone and clean minerality. We enjoy this wine both as an aperitif and as a complement to a variety of cuisines.
