Hiyu 'Aura' Columbia Gorge Red, 2018, 750ml



In the past this has been made as a macerated white wine, but in 2018 we made it as a red wine for the first time… sort of. We made three picks from the parcel and each of these picks were fermented on the skins for different amounts of time: 10 days, 24 days and 100 days. They were aged in barrel separately and then bottled together after aging in barrel for 20 months.
This tastes like a theoretical cross between Emmanuel Rouget Echezeaux, Radikon Pinot Gris and Ganevat J’En Veux. It smells like Vosne Romanee, but with a texture more ethereal and a wild component that evokes more radical wines from further east
