Day Wines 2017 Tears of Vulcan
I wanted to make an aromatic and textured white like one might find in Sicily. I named it Tears of Vulcan because I was thinking of really the only thing Sicily and Oregon have in common, volcanic soils. Thus the god of volcanos graces the label. The fruit is from Le Beau Vineyard (the Viognier and Pinot gris) and Nemarniki Vineyard (the Muscat). I destemmed it and fermented it on its skins for 3 weeks, doing pigeage daily. It got a little reduced during fermentation so I gave it long pump overs which blew it off. After it was finished with alcoholic fermentation, I pressed it off and put it into one new Russian oak puncheon with Acacia heads, and 4 neutral barrels. It went through MLF in these, and then I finally sulfured the wine and bottled it on June 19th 2017.
