Therianthropy David Eagle Gamay 2019

Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaFrom Twenty Mile Bench's legendary Foxcroft Wismer Vineyard, these 22 year old gamay vines were dry farmed, rooted in the site's calcareous clay, limestone-laced soils. This year David Eiberg used 40% whole cluster and a 6 day cold soak, followed by a 19 day native ferment. It rested 4 months in older 225L barrels before being bottled unfined and unfiltered, with a recyclable plant-based cork, sealed with a beeswax button. Bright and fresh, with tight cherry, wild raspberry, pepper, wild spicing flooding the juicy palate. Tannins are tight and acidity is crunchy, with a thread of reduction drawing this to a very saline finish. #GoGamayGo.Tasted: 14 December 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 27.95 winery direct Producer: TherianthropyDistributors: The Living Vine
