Gamay/Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County - 2021
Hand harvested and organically grown; 100% whole cluster carbonic fermentation. Each varietal was fermented separately and picked at different times. Pumped over once daily after which the top was again sealed and the fermenter was gassed using carbon dioxide. Fermented on the native yeasts, followed by full malolactic by naturally occurring bacteria. Fermentation lasted for 8 days then pressed and racked in to vessels for aging. The Pinot Noir and the Gamay were both aged in our 3200 liter Austrian wood tanks. After 4 months the wines were racked and blended together then put back into tanks for an additional 3 months. A total Of 30ppm so2 was added prior to bottling without filtration in keeping with our minimalist (lo-fi) philosophy. Notes of Violets, Raspberry, Hibiscus, Cherry Cough Drops, Strawberry, Cedar box.
