Pearl Morissette - 2019 Gamay
Crunchy, vibrant and inviting, this is a Gamay that you can bite into, but it'll also leave you hankering for another glass. 100% Gamay from our Redfoot vineyard makes for a bottle that brims with energy and bursts with fruit, invigorating like air bubbles running up your spine rather than heavy and enveloping. Drink it on its own, pair with pretty much everything, let it open your appetite and make you hungry for more; cellar it and you'll see it blooming with the nobility of a Pinot. The choice is yours.
Vinification & Élevage:
2019 Gamay is 100% Gamay from the Redfoot vineyard in Lincoln Lakeshore and was harvested on October 11th , 2019. After careful sorting, the fruit entered the tank as 100% whole-cluster. Fermentation by indigenous yeast proceeded steadily in a concrete tank and the wine was pressed immediately after it fermented dry on October 26th , 2019. Élevage was done in a combination of concrete eggs (55%), old foudre and an old oak demi-muid (45%) for a total of 8 months on lees without racking before the wine was transferred to stainless steel for an additional 2.5 months in preparation for bottling.
