From: Willamette Valley, OR
Blend: Müller Thurgau (36%), Gewürztraminer (33%), Riesling (24%), and Pinot gris (7%)
Taste: The vibrant Vin de Days l’Orange 2022 wine is a truly unique and delightful expression of a blend of Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Gewürztraminer, and Pinot Gris grapes. The generous skin contact has imparted a beautiful orange hue to the wine, and on the nose, it presents an intense and expressive bouquet of Navel orange pulp and skin, dried mango, fresh rose, kumquat, and pineapple sage. As the wine opens up, the fruit profile evolves, revealing notes of candied orange rind, dried apricot, and white tea. On the palate, this wine is medium-bodied and slightly tannic, with a bright and grippy finish that lingers pleasantly. The acidity is well-balanced, making this wine refreshing and perfect for pairing with food.
Pairing: The 2022 Day Wines, Vin de Days l'Orange wine is a versatile wine that pairs well with a range of dishes. Its acidity and texture make it an excellent match for bold and flavorful dishes. The intense citrus notes in this wine would pair well with spicy Asian cuisine, especially Thai green curry or a myriad of Vietnamese dishes. The wine's tannins and acidity would also complement fatty dishes such as roasted pork belly or grilled salmon. For a vegetarian pairing, try it with a hearty vegetable stew, lentil dal, or a vegetable tart, like the Carrot Tart with Ricotta and Feta recipe we’re sharing below. Overall, this wine would be a perfect match for any dish that is bold, flavorful, and has a bit of spice. It is also a great wine to enjoy on its own, as an aperitif or with a cheese plate.
Carrot Tart With Ricotta and Feta
By Sue Li
About. In 2006 Brianne Day sold everything she owned and began traveling through wine regions all over the world. Over the following eight years she visited around 80 different regions, working at wineries in Burgundy, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand. During this time, she re-established her home base in Oregon and worked at a number of wineries including The Eyrie Vineyards and Brooks.
In 2012 Brianne started her own winery with some Pinot Noir grapes from the 15-acre, dry-farmed Crowley Station Vineyard in the Eola Amity Hills. The inaugural vintage was only 125 cases and sold out quickly. On the strength of that single bottling she was invited to the RAW fair in London and was one of only seven American wineries mentioned in Isabelle Legeron’s recent book, Natural Wine, alongside Edmunds St. John and Arnot Roberts.
Since then, Brianne has grown her production, producing exceptional Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah, as well as working with under-appreciated varieties such as Malvasia, Tannat, and Aligote.
Brianne's general winemaking is as follows: native yeast fermentations, low additions of sulfur, minimal punch downs, rare pump overs, and only tiny amounts of new oak.
