2017 Day Wines 'Hock & Deuce' Mae's Vineyard Syrah

2017 Day Wines 'Hock & Deuce' Mae's Vineyard Syrah

Region: Applegate Valley < Oregon

Grapes: Syrah + 15% Viognier

Vineyard/Cellar Stats: Organic farming; soil is a mix of Laurelwood (a particular type of silty loam Ice Age loess, a remnant of the last big glacial retreat found only in the Chehalem Mountains) and iron-rich, volcanic red Jory; Syrah and Viognier arrive at the crush pad at the same time, and are processed simultaneously. 30% of the grapes go into the fermenters as whole-clusters; the balance is destemmed.  Cap management is primarily via pigeage and punchdowns, for greater extraction. Three weeks on skins until dry, then pressed off into neutral French oak barrels.  Allowed to age for 22 months prior to bottling, unfined and unfiltered, with zero added SO2; zero-zero; 13% ABV; 200 cases
