2018 'Petit Doré Adoré, by Day WinesRegular price $39.00
From Day Wines, the 2018 Petit Doré Adoré is sourced entirely from Herb Quady's Eevee's Block estate vineyard in Applegate Valley. The yields of this wine are so meager that only produced 53 cases, making this one of the most limited releases from Day Wines this year. Barrel-fermented and aged for nine months after 5 days of skin contact, the wine displays a bright, sunsplashed color. Tart orange peel and lemon oil lead on the nose, with white flowers and golden currant emerging after a few minutes' air. On the palate, persistent but subtle acid (the result of gentle, full malo) carries flavors of green apple, gooseberry, and floral liqueur that culminate in a fine, dusty almond note. From wintry tables to the dog days of summer, this little gem suits pretty much any occasion.
