2018 Sis & Mae Wine Co. Gamay Noir
2018 Sis & Mae Wine Co. Gamay NoirGamay Noir - is it the Willamette Valley's other viable red wine? We think there is a compelling case to be made. This wine is crafted with grapes from a small block, self rooted, planted in the late 1970's. It isn't made as a single variety every year, often blended into the pinot noir. In 2018 we were able to isolate it, ferment it in a small half bin (mass alone made this a slow fermentation) put in stainless very briefly while it completed malolactic fermentation, and hand bottle a mere 26 cases. What is presented to you is a rather bright red fruited, refreshingly spicy, unadulterated taste of gamay noir.
