2016 Gamay, Barsotti Vineyard
El Dorado County
Grown at high elevation in the beautiful red grinitic soils of the Sierra Foothills. Carbonic maceration lends its distinctive high tone appeal but eventually crushed by foot and finished whole cluster for skin contact and extraction. Only a six month elevage in neutral barrique and bottled young to preserve delicate aromatics. Light, fresh and utterly charming. Wild strawberry and summer herbs with cranberry tartness. 11.2 ABV.
