Day Wines 'Vin de Days Rouge' 2021
Producer: Day Wines
Varietal: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Gris
Notes: This red is made from a blend of 83% Pinot Noir, 13% Pinot Meunier, and 4% Pinot Gris grown in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. All vineyards used were farmed organically or biodynamically. Fifty percent whole-cluster, fifty percent destemmed fruit, with the whole-clustered fruit on the bottom of each fermenter to allow for carbonic maceration. For this wine, we never once punch down the cap, but rather rely on pump-overs twice a day; this promotes a gentle extraction and a more fruit-centric wine. As with all of our wines, the Rouge is spontaneously fermented with limited interventions throughout primary and secondary fermentations. Once dry, the wine was pressed off into neutral French oak and stainless steel tanks to complete spontaneous malolactic fermentation and mature for a few months. Unfiltered and minimal sulfur used prior to bottling.
