Vineyard Notes
The 2017 Willamette Valley Gamay Noir was sourced from three vineyards in two nesting Willamette Valley AVAs: 66% of the fruit came from Björnson Vineyard and 30% from Redford-Wetle Farm (both in the Eola-Amity Hills). 14% came from Twelve Oaks Estate in the Chehalem Mountains AVA.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were picked October 1 and 15 then sorted and placed in the fermenter with 25% whole clusters. After an approximately five day cold soak, fermentation started without inoculation. Fermentation lasted approximately 15 days with daily manual punchdowns. The wine was pressed and aged in neutral oak barrels for 15 months sur lie, never racking or stirring.
