Lightfoot and Wolfville Terroir Series Gamay Noir 2020

Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, Canada#GoGamayGo! This pale hued gamay shows there is little that the small and mighty Lightfoot and Wolfville can't do. From a tiny organic / biodynamic gamay plot off their Oak Island Vineyard, this was 30% destemmed and 70% whole cluster, native fermented and quickly barrelled down into 60% stainless and 40% French barrique where they sat for 3 months prior to blending and bottling, sans filtration. Light and skippy on the slight palate, with salted strawberry, cherry, white pepper, and an astringent rinse on the tart, lifted finish. Tannins are feather fine, and acidity is easily lofted. A joyous charmer, and one to watch.Tasted: 09 October 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: NS 36.00 winery direct Producer: Lightfoot and WolfvilleGrape: Gamay Noir
