Day Lemonade Rose 2023, Dundee, Oregon

“Our latest version of this wine continues the bright, juicy tradition that Lemonade has become. Berries and citrus dominate with ripe raspberry, juicy grapefruit, pink apple, Meyer lemon, wet stones and lifted floral aromatics. High quality, organic vineyards were used, the fruit was picked at an optimal time for rose´, and the wine was steadily crafted into a bright and juicy, delicious rose´. Four organically grown vineyards across the Willamette Valley provided Pinot noir and one organic vineyard in the Applegate provided Gamay, the combination is juicy, bright, and full of fruit.” Grapes were gently pressed whole cluster, and juice was cold settled to remove heavy lees. It was racked the next day to stainless steel where it was compiled and began native fermentation. Fermentation was active and frothy! Each lot was racked 4 or 5 times and blended through racking. After primary fermentation completed, and malo fermentation reached a level of 1.21 g/l malic acid remaining, the wine was cold stabilized, and then sulfured, filtered, and bottled.
