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. 2019 Gamay was bottled unfiltered and un-fined on September 10th , 2020.
