Bachelder Wismer-Foxcroft Gamay Noir Niagara Cru I 33% Whole Cluster 2021

Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaThomas Bachelder, long heralded with his skilled hand at chardonnay and pinot noir, has turned his eye towards gamay, with a series of releases from the 2020 vintage, including two from Wismer-Foxcroft Vineyard, the special Twenty Mile Bench site known for its exceptional chardonnays and pinot noirs. Planted in 1993 to magnesium and limestone laced soils, this gamay was 33% whole cluster. Super fragrant, with wild blueberry, iris, slatey notes along a lengthy, slender palate, shimmering on the bottom with that limestone light, and effortlessly lifted with a bright acidity. Drinking beautifully now, with a slight chill, and will continue to hold smartly short term.Tasted: 05 May 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
