SKU: LDRW9 Category:

Region: Chehalem Mountains, OR Grape(s): 57% Viognier, 23% Pinot Gris, 20% Muscat Winemaking practices: Organic, native yeast, un-fined, unfiltered. The grapes were de-stemmed and fermented on its skins for three weeks, and the winemaker did pigeage (punching down) daily. After the alcoholic fermentation was finished, the wine was pressed off and put it into neutral French oak barrels for 10 months. Food pairing: Fatty and oily fish, game meat paté, creamy pasta dishes Description: This James Beard nominated winery is one of La Dive’s favorites to work with and their winemaker, Brianne Day, we believe to be prodigious in terms of ‘natural’ winemaking in Oregon. As you likely know, Vulcan was the god of fire and Brianne found this name fitting because of the highly volcanic soil that this wine is grown in. However, the hints of iron and other metal notes so often found in wines from volcanic terroir are noticeably missing in this wine which manages to be punchy, fat and ripe with loads of perfume and herbal aromas like tarragon and oregano. The palate exhibits exotic tropical peach and mango and finishes with that tartness that we so often find in orange wine. Rich and yummy!
