Ravensworth - Charlie Foxtrot Gamay Noir 2021
Region: Tumbarumba, Murrumbateman
Full carbonic Gamay from Ravensworth. Hand picked fruit from Tumbarumba & Murrumbateman. No oak, no fining, no filtration. A little slice of Beaujoulais in Aus.
After harvest, whole clusters were held in tank under carbonic conditions (flooded with CO2). The juice was collected each day, pumped over and then drained off. After 10 days, the fermentation progressed with more rigorous pump-overs until dry. Skin contact continued for another week before the wine was pressed to tank. Malo was allowed to complete naturally, followed by cold settling and bottling. No oak, no fining, no filtration.
