Chapter V: ̈Ghost Stories” Gamay Vin Gris

Gamay Vin Gris

SKU: 287428 Region/Producer: Format:

Grown at Thacker Vineyard in West Kelowna. The owners of the vineyard have been slowly weaning off of conventional farming and the 2023 growing season saw them use two applications of a non organic mildew prevention spray. The vineyard sits on the slopes of an ancient volcano, with the soils consisting mainly of volcanic rock, sandy loam, and heavier clay deposits.

Winemaking:
Made from 100% Gamay Noir, once the fruit had arrived to the winery we gave it a gentle whole cluster press, with no maceration. Pressed directly into a mixture of neutral barrels and puncheons where it went through a natural ferment and malolactic. Once fermentation was complete, we added 15ppm of sulphur, and left the wine to rest on its fermentation lees for 5 months. Racked once prior to being bottled by hand, unfined and unfiltered.

Nose: apricot blossom / thai basil / graphite / cotton candy
Palate: peach skin / grapefruit pith / fresh aloe / pink jolly rancher
