Background

"Orange wine is not a fad. It is a centuries old wine that we are only now being reintroduced to. Viognier is a great grape choice when making an orange wine. I was given a lucky opportunity to source 1 x ton of Viognier from the 1994 planting at Deux Vert Vineyard in Yamhill, Oregon. Deux Vert is the location of the first Viognier and Syrah plantings in the Willamette Valley. We are lucky and fortunate to have access to this historic fruit. 2019 was a much cooler vintage and the fermentation was slow. Finally, after 24 days on skins it was pressed off into twice used Acacia puncheons and Bordeaux barrels.

This [vintage] suffered from bloom damage. The resulting clusters were not uniform with lots of shot berries and strange morphology. The berries were much smaller than normal, so there was a greater skin to juice ratio. This vintage will be tough to repeat. The structure is off the charts. A strong candidate for over vintaging the wine."  - Golden Cluster
