Day Wines "Twinkle , Twinkle" Applegate Valley Orange Wine
Twinkle Twinkle" is Brianne Day's newest iteration of an orange wine. A field blend from the Layne Vineyard in Southern Oregon's Applegate Valley, comprised of 53% Chardonnay, 32% Vermentino, and 15% Muscat. According to Day, "The wine is very orange - not just in color but also in aroma and flavor. Like a sweet juicy navel orange. The Muscat is well integrated and shows a little bit of floral notes on the aroma, and the Vermentino presents itself in the finish, which is a bit more like lemon pith and saline - it winds up with this great briny finish. The skin contact and one new barrel (out of 6) gives the wine a really fun, slightly grippy texture.
