2022 Wismer-Foxcroft Gamay

Born from the esteemed Wismer-Foxcroft vineyard on the Twenty Mile Bench, this gamay is ready to enjoy now, yet will reward cellaring.

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose draws cherry, raspberry jam, kalamata olive and cassis.  The texture is juicy with a soft salinity and flavours suggest sour cherry, blackcurrant and purple plum, leaving a spicy hint of sage on the finish.

Grape clusters reaching 21.3° Brix were picked by hand at the Wismer Foxcroft site on the 8th of October.

The newly harvested grapes fermented, half as whole-berry clusters and half crushed, in alternating layers, in a stainless-steel tank.  After six months in neutral French oak, 100 cases were bottled in May 2023.

Enjoy now to 2027.
