2017 Gamay Noir

Duck Pond Cellars

Tasting Notes

Garnet in the glass, the nose is earthy, with elements of dried tobacco and saffron.  The palate is ripe and juicy, with dark, jammy fruits that envelope the palate. Nose is enjoyable with notes of cranberry, orange peel & fruit leather.  The palate is fleshy, carrying through those flavors from the nose and adding a hint of allspice & vanilla.

Vineyard Notes

Shoot thinning is performed early in the year; after fruit set, leaves are removed in the fruit zone on the east side of the vines. Later, the clusters are counted and thinned to a maximum of 28 clusters per vine. Once the grapes have achieved 75% color, a final cluster thinning is performed to remove any green or second crop clusters. The average yield is 2 tons per acre.

Winemaking Notes

Wine was foot-pressed for first two days after harvest, then punchdowns twice daily for 10 days.

Overall, nice wine with a LOT of acid. I'm amazed that it says it has any new oak - when I bought it, the Winemaker said it was only aged in neutral barrels, not the 10% new listed.
