2020 Terroir Series Gamay Noir
An exciting new addition to our Terroir Series; a collection of single-varietal wines with a strong sense of place and tidal influence. The 2020 growing season was exceptionally warm and dry, allowing for unprecedented flavour development in our 1-acre of Oak Island Vineyard Gamay Noir.
Gamay Noir grapes were hand-harvested on the 16th of October - 30% were crushed and destemmed and 70% were left whole-cluster for indigenous primary fermentation. Following pressing, at the beginning of November, 40% of the cuvée was barrelled down to two neutral French oak barriques and 60% went to stainless steel for three months aging and full malolactic conversion before both components were blended together and bottled without any filtration.

Pale-cherry in the glass with intense, amplified fruit notes on the nose - tart strawberry, dusty cranberry - with dried violet, brown spice and graphite notes. A restrained and well-balanced light red with fine, silky tannins and bright, cold fruit character.
This is a light red that is delightfully refreshing when served slightly chilled, especially alongside tuna tartare, turkey dinner or light picnic fare.
