There’s precious little Gamay in California but fortunately folks are getting wise to this grape’s glugglable goodness. There are Gamay plantings in varied sites, including the home of this wine – the Savannah Oaks vineyard, a 25-acre mixed site on the northern edge of the Santa Ynez Valley. The Birds harvest this fruit early, to retain its fresh acidity and aromatics, and then ferment the Gamay, destemmed, in open-top stainless steel for 18 days. It is aged in neutral French oak for six months before bottling a miniscule 75 cases. At just 11% ABV this wine has a mind-boggling low alcohol content for all its play, character and aromatics.
