2020 GargamayGamay + Garganega
2020 ‘Gargamay’ Gamay + Garganega (red and white) co-ferment! SUPER RARE - only 12 bottles remain!
When life hands you lemons, you make a brand new wine no one has ever heard of and you had no intention of making in the first place...Our struggle of growing Gamay in the vineyard is, as the kids say, real. In addition to heavy frost and deer damage year after year, we were also blessed by the Grape Gods of Fury by getting Garganega plant material to graft onto the rootstock when we actually ordered Gamay...For those of you who don't know what Garganega is, welcome to the very large club. It is a white grape from the Veneto region of Northern Italy. It is most known as the primary grape in Soave wines, which can be rich, textural peach-y and herbaceous turning toward nutty after some age.
Anyway, when we realized there were white grapes growing where more Gamay should have been, we decided to pick the whole lot and ferment it together for a potentially never been done before Gamay + Garanega amalgamation.
Only 46 cases made!
