Day 2021 Vin de Days l'Orange White (Willamette Valley)

Editors' Choice

This is the extended-skin-contact gem to change the minds of orange-wine haters everywhere. The Müller-Thurgau, Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris blend was de-stemmed and fermented on skins, with full malolactic fermentation and three months in neutral French oak. Peaches and papaya dominate on the nose, supported by aromas of rose water, wet bricks, lime zest and home-made bitters. The flavors are almost supernaturally good, with ginger and apricots trying to outdo blood-orange sorbet and a cup of white peony tea. Balanced, with velvety tannins with brisk acidity.
