2021 Convivial Pinot Noir/Gamay
The Convivial wines are a new addition to our portfolio. The idea behind this project is to make wines that are fresh, energetic, and bursting with flavor!
We utilize carbonic maceration to really bring the fruit out. After around 7 days of carbonic, we break up the fruit and allow the fermentation to proceed like our usual red wine fermentations: open top with manual punch downs and pump overs. After a few days more of fermentation, we pressed the grapes off and let the wine finish fermenting in tank before going to older French oak barrels for 9 months before bottling. 200 cases produced.
