Gamay Noir

  • 2014
This County Gamay was picked mid October of the cooler vintage of 2014. The cool summer, but warm, dry fall produced fruit with wonderful phenolic complexity, while retaining lively acidity and freshness that are hallmarks of the County. The fruit was fully destemmed and fermented in small lots with indigenous yeasts. Pressed in our basket press post fermentation and aged in French Oak barriques for 10 months.
From a cooler vintage, this County Gamay shows aromas of bright red fruit, elegant floral notes and subtle spice. On the palate darker fruit notes, lively acidity and soft tannins; all followed by a long, lingering finish. A beautiful, fresh, county Gamay.
